Student-created projects from “Conservation in the Classroom,” an environmental education experience, are on exhibit through Aug. 28 at the Coastal Discovery Museum in the temporary gallery.

The program was designed to inspire and challenge students to take action and to share information with others about conservation. It launched during the 2019-20 school year.

Curriculum included four themes for teachers to choose from (shorebirds, sea turtles, dolphins, or horseshoe crabs). Each theme included an introduction activity by the teacher in the classroom, an education program presented by the Coastal Discovery Museum at the school, and a hands-on classroom project for students.

These projects helped students work together to spread the word about conservation.

This spring, the museum also opened offered the program to students learning remotely from their homes. Families learned together – helping spread the conservation message even more.

It is hoped that viewing the students’ projects will inspire others to take action, help protect the environment, and continue to spread the word.

Coastal Discovery Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island. For more information, visit coastal discovery.org or call 843-689-6767.
