Four students from St. Lucie West Centennial High School were invited to join students from Broward County Public Schools to participate in an instructional camp at MarineLab in Key Largo, FL in November.

The students, who are identified as deaf or hard of hearing, had the opportunity to engage in marine science activities and perform experiments with the help of educational interpreters. When writing about their experiences, student comments included, “I was so excited because everyone was signing” and “I will never forget it; it was wonderful!”

It was truly a valuable educational and social opportunity for all the students who attended.
