The STEM Department at Ramona Convent recently took twenty students to the Catalina Island Marine Institute. There students engaged in a variety of marine related activities. As soon as they arrived on the island, the girls were excited to be able to go rock climbing and explore the beach.
The Students woke up early on Saturday and embarked on a hike to see the sunrise. On their second day, they were able to dissect a squid, pet some not so ferocious sharks, and snorkel. The trip was filled with new experiences and they even had an encounter with a bison as they looked up at the stars that night! The experience gave them the opportunity to learn more about marine life and the ocean in an exploratory setting.
