Don’t miss your chance to get your own WOW Stick this month — while also helping to transform lives and protect our planet! Keep reading below to find out more.
The heartbreaking truth is that many of the students in urban, high-poverty communities have limited opportunities to study science. Executive Director Shara Fisler founded Ocean Discovery Institute in 1999 to change that by developing a program that gives students the know how — and the inspiration — to become part of the next generation of scientific and environmental leaders.
WHAT OCEAN DISCOVERY INSTITUTE DOES
Today, Ocean Discovery Institute provides free science education to more than 6,000 students in one of San Diego’s most underserved neighborhoods, City Heights. This includes both classroom and out-of-school programming.
This cornerstone program brings ocean science into the classroom for students in grades 3-6. Through this four-year program, students learn what science is, how science works, and how science is relevant to their lives.
The Watershed Avengers program is designed to use ocean science and local resources to teach science and environmental stewardship. Students, along with their families and neighbors, learn how the world works and how they can make a difference.
The Ocean Leaders program helps provide students who want to become scientists with the tools they’ll need. More than 100 middle school, high school, and college-age young people participate annually in these after-school and summer programs.
This spring, Ocean Discovery Institute opened The Living Lab, a permanent, state-of-the-art science facility built in partnership with the San Diego Unified School District. With this new center, Ocean Discovery Institute will be able to reach 10,000 children in City Heights. As well as increase quality of programming, and expand the role of families, teachers, and mentors.
Here at Katherine Natural Cosmetics, we’re pretty blown away with the success Ocean Discovery Institute is having. And we think you will be too. Check out how their programs are changing lives, helping to improve the health of our communities and our world!
• Ocean Discovery students are eight times more likely to earn a college degree than the average low-income college student.
• Test scored have significantly improved in 9 of the 13 schools using the program.
• 7-in-10 Ocean Discovery college students major in science fields.
