Science GCs from St. Lucie and Martin County Acceleration academies recently visited the Ocean Discovery Visitors Center (ODVC) of Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.

The ODVC is a destination where the community can go to learn about the research conducted by the marine scientists, engineers and students at Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. They offer groups an hour-long experience at the ODVC which includes a video introduction and interpretive tour of the center’s five educational exhibits (Marine Drug Discovery, Marine Mammal Research & Conservation, Aquaculture & Stock Enhancement, Marine Ecosystem Health and Ocean Engineering) as well as time to visit the touch tank, gift shop and student information center.

GCs represented Acceleration Academy very well and were eager to receive information and ask questions re the following: Marine Drug Discovery, Marine Mammal Research & Conservation, Aquaculture & Stock Enhancement, Marine Ecosystem Health and Ocean Engineering.
