Students and teachers from across Maimi-Dade County Public Schools celebrated the partnership between Miami-Dade County Public Schools and Discovery Education on Monday, August 16, 2010 at the Biscayne Bay Nature Center. The day began with a welcome from Miami-Dade County Superintendent Alberto Carvahlo who introduced Philippe Cousteau who talked to the students about their role in protecting the environment. During the visit students explored online digital content from Discovery Education Science as they learned about abiotic and biotic factors and the human impact on ecosystems. Students also explored Biscayne Bay as they learned about algae and the bay habitat. It was a wonderful launch to an impactful partnership.
