“Our present way of life has left younger people with more environmental problems than solutions. I say start em’ young and keep them questioning. Curiosity makes way to innovation, and innovation makes way to solutions. Never stop innovating and keep in mind that we only have one Earth.”
— Owen Franco, Educator
“I want to use my interests in the ocean to inspire our youth to try new activities and explore their own passions in a safe and encouraging environment. The more they enjoy and care for the ocean, the more likely they are to make better choices for themselves and the environment if they can better understand the bigger picture.”
— Holly Keedy, Educator
“I have a deep love and passion for the ocean which I enjoy sharing with our students. By teaching out in nature I hope to inspire them so they develop a lifelong respect for our marine environments.”
— Cody Martin, Educator
"I hope to inspire kids to be curious about the natural world. Once that curiosity strikes, they will be eager to learn more and use what they learn to spread their knowledge and help conserve our planet."
