The Berry Islands, Bahamas

June, 1995 the Can-Do teachers went to the Berry Islands, Bahamas in order to ground truth some of the pictures that our remote cameras took aboard the the orbiter Endeavor during a June, 1993 flight. This week long, bare boat adventure allowed 24 teachers to examine the area closely, collect specimen for the classroom, document with pictures from the ground, and design a few classroom activities to share with you. It also allowed us to compare details shown in the remote pictures to what we could actually touch, see, and experience in this area. Preparation for this trip included Tropical Marine Science graduate course work and real world learning. We have also included best and worst experiences from first hand accounts and pictures of this adventure.
