Grades 6 and 7 dive into marine science at Camp SEA Lab

Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School sixth- and seventh-graders spent three days and two nights diving deep into marine science at Camp SEA Lab in Aptos.

The trip, from May 3-5, was part of IEB Week, a week of experiential learning through off-campus adventures.

At Camp SEA Lab, students engaged in hands-on science activities, including measuring sand crab populations and conducting experiments related to ocean acidification; observed local wildlife while kayaking in Elkhorn Slough; and enjoyed spending time together through games and beach bonfires. They gained a greater understanding of the challenges facing marine environments. Check out photos from the trip.

Earlier in the week, sixth-graders also did a beach cleanup at Del Monte Beach and seventh-graders visited Driscoll’s to learn about the process of growing strawberries. Meanwhile, Grade 8 learned more about our nation’s history when they visited Washington, D.C.
