Aquariums in the Classroom: Riverview High School’s Aquascience Program

Dr. Roy Yanong on Pet Life Radio

Aquarium keeping is more than just a great hobby.  It also teaches valuable lessons about science, nature, and even careers in aquatics! A perfect example of this can be seen at Riverview High School, in Sarasota, FL, where innovators Katrin Rudge and her colleagues use aquarium systems to teach aquaculture, natural resources, engineering, and business.  Riverview High School’s Aquascience Program currently enrolls approximately 250-300 students, and their “Stars to Starfish” program is gearing up to educate not only these high schoolers, but hundreds of visiting grade school students as well. 

My guests today are Katrin Rudge and her students Matt LaVigna, Wes Robertson, Tyler Fushikoshi. Join us, as we discuss aquariums in the classroom at Riverview High School!
