The Colorado Coralition

Inspired by their teacher's own transformative experience of learning to scuba dive and volunteering with a coral restoration group, students from Polaris Expeditionary Learning School engaged in a project with multiple components: in-depth study of environmental issues surrounding the decline of healthy coral reefs, scuba certification for students, a trip to serve in the coral restoration efforts on a reef in the Florida Keys, and spreading the message about their learning and experiences through presentations, music, and video.
