with Holley Rauen, RN and Ann Smith

FGCU’s Research Artificial Reef will provide students with experiential education within their field of study. It will have positive economic impact in the region, and through our outreach programs with area schools, it will provide an opportunity to take the classroom underwater. The Water School’s focus is on improving our environment through science discovery and solutions.
