Exploring Diversity through Aquaculture

Exploring Diversity through Aquaculture (EDA) is an intensive two-week travel program designed to expose high school students to the science and business of aquaculture while they explore the cultures of the Deep South and East Coast. Twenty-four diverse high school students from the greater Hartford area travel to Alabama and Cape Cod to study issues related to the aquaculture industry and its influence on local communities. The program introduces students to scientific experimentation and cultural diversity, exposes them to universities and research centers and serves as an introduction to the array of professional possibilities in the fisheries and aquaculture industries.

Students are selected to participate based on science aptitude, teacher recommendations and a written essay. EDA extends the academic year and provides students with expanded learning opportunities in an exciting and motivating atmosphere while facilitating the understanding of diverse cultures and life experiences. High school elective credit is given at the discretion of the sending school. Tuition is $200.

EDA will travel to Auburn University in Alabama the week of April 17-23, 2011 and the Cape Cod National Seashore, the week of June 21-27, 2011. Applications due DECEMBER 15, 2010

Monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month February through June from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Harris AgriScience Center in Bloomfield.
