Project 22 Marine Discovery Tours
  One of our most popular projects we sponsor is the floating classroom created by Marine Discovery Tours of Newport. MDT and BSCC collaborated to design a positive fishing industry program that teaches and reinforces concepts being taught in our classrooms. Children and teachers love the program and every year we receive hundreds of thank you cards, drawings and letters expressing their gratitude. From Huntington, “Thank you for the opportunity to spend time on the Marine Discovery Tours “Floating Classroom.” The middle school students found the whole experience to be a once in a life time activity. It helped them to understand more about the sea life that surrounds our wonderful state of Oregon by use of hands on activities that all students were able to participate in. We also had the opportunity to go out onto the ocean and observe a whale feeding and sea lions sunning themselves. Those experiences are the ones that the students will never forget. BSCC's donation allowed my students the opportunity to go on this trip. It is these types of experiences that students remember for the rest of their lives. These hands on experiences give students an opportunity to support the objectives they have learned in the classroom and solidify the concept. Bandon Submarine Cable Council supports our youth. They are our future.
