Join us for one or more of these Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) Workshops!
The interdisciplinary Project WET activities support California Science, History/Social Science and National Common Core Standards and are an effective tool for integrating student knowledge of water resources with activities that include real-life based scenarios that provide strong foundations for STEAM and Service-Learning programs. Project WET activities are designed to supplement existing curriculum, including the use of EEI (Education & the Environment Initiative) curriculum units.
Join the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium on Sunday, May 15 at 3:00pm in our Green Room for a fascinating presentation on great white sharks! Our very own Sarah Munro-Kennedy will share her amazing experiences of working with white sharks off the coast of Africa. Learn all about these misunderstood creatures and why they are important to our ocean ecosystem. This presentation is included with Aquarium admission.
Join us on Saturday, June 4, to honor the life and influence of Nick Gabaldon with free surf lessons and admission to Heal the Bay's Santa Monica Pier Aquarium!
Nick was America's first documented surfer of African-American and Mexican descent, and is widely considered a role model for his part in the history of surfing and overcoming de facto segregation. This beach celebration honors those who came before us and teaches those who will lead us into the future.
Alison Rose Jefferson, PhD, will lead a presentation on Tuesday, April 26, about Bruce's Beach, an early twentieth century African American resort in Manhattan Beach. In addition to the history of the site and its agents, she will discuss misinformation passed down in the last hundred years as well as recent findings of the contentious relationship between the Bruces and the city founders.
