Dr. Tyson Talks with Jeff Dess

I recently became aware of a new energy drink called Cocaine when several of our students told us that they drank 5 of them in one sitting! They became very ill. I then began to investigate these drinks and was rather shocked by what I learned. I encourage our parents and students to listen carefully to this brief interview with Mr. Dess. Not only is what he says eye opening, I suspect it is also widely unknown.

Jekyll Island Podcast: The Maritime Forest and Boneyard Beach (VP)

Our 7th grade students spent last week on a science expedition on Jekyll Island, exploring the marine habit and ecosystems. Not only did they have a tremendous amount of fun, but they attended classes in the field, studying:

  • The Slouth
  • The Maritime Forest
  • The Beach
  • The Marsh
  • The Dock
  • Herpetology
  • Endangered Species

The depth of understanding acquired by our students by seeing, feeling, and holding first hand is difficult to match. Be sure to visit the Jekyll Island, 2007 blog at the Mabry Global Learning Collaborative. You will find hundreds and hundreds of pictures of the students in their classes.

While on the island, student created short video podcasts of their experiences. This podcast highlights the maritime forest, also known as Boneyard Beach.
