Awe and Wonder at Grice Marine Lab

Today we visited College of Charleston’s Grice Marine Laboratory. The campers absolutely loved the visit- plankton, touch tanks, what more could we ask for!

We are studying water quality this week at camp, and our field trip perfectly tied in to the engineering curriculum that requires students to act like environmental engineers as they think through water pollution and ultimately design their own water filters. Our visit with Grice Marine Lab provided the reason why water quality is important- and how water quality is essential for all creatures.
