Penn State students taking Mónica’s Biological Oceanography class are posting on-line about a multitude of topics related to marine biology! Some of these are also posted on the Smithsonian No bones website, and you check them out here.

Aki, Bishoy and Ana participated in the “Exploration-U: State College Community STEM Night” outreach event. The event was held at the State College High School on Tuesday March 24th, and it was recorded!

Fall 2014

We recently had an opportunity to work with the kids from Bocas del Toro Island during our Panama 2014 fieldtrip with assistance of Marlon, the STRI outreach coordinator, and the local school.  Children played and learned about natural events and human activities that are beneficial or harmful to the reefs! Children also enjoyed learning about marine fauna with a memory card game!
