FGCU summer camp teaching kids about water quality

Florida Gulf Coast University is making waves by educating the younger generation about Florida’s waters.

“It’s really fascinating and it’s fun to learn about our oceans,” said Sidney Kamerman, 7th grader, North Naples Middle School.

Eleven middle school students from all over Southwest Florida are getting their hands wet in Marine Biology.

“I’ve always been interested in marine biology and want to be a marine biologist when I grow up,” said Jax Possehl, Venice.

“And that’s when I really started connecting with the environment, where I found my love for science, my love of the oceans, and it’s that start that really brought me to where I am today,” said Phoebe Clark, FGCU Marine Biology Graduate Student.
