Yesterday (Sunday 7/10/06) Rebecca did a 3 1/2 hour presentation for Girl Scouts ages 13-17. She had about 40 girls and about 25 adults in attendance. She did sessions on coral reefs/artificial reefs, gps systems, and water testing. It was a fun session and the girls seemed to really learn something. There will be (minimum) 2 more sessions for girl scouts and then several sessions for middle schools in the area. The attached file is a press release from our local Girl Scout council. Last Thursday, Rebecca was interviewed live on the radio about the project - we have a recording of that if you'd like a copy. The Sun Sentinel came Sunday and did an article about the program. here's the link but the copy is attached below. I do have some physical copies of the paper if you need. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/local/southflorida/sfl-creef10jul10,0,3635917.story National Girl Scouts - GSUSA - will be putting information out about the project on their website soon. I'll send you that information when I get it. There was also another article in the Miami Herald a couple of weeks ago. I will have to find the copy of that to send to you.
