This podcast gives a brief overview of our field trip to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.  This incredible weekend excursion provided 35 8th grade science club students a chance to explore a barrier island, view marine life hands-on, and study ecological and evironmental elements of the Gulf of Mexico.  The students participated in several activities such as trip to the local estuarium, a boat trip on the sea lab research vessel, a salt marsh trip, shark dissection, and a plankton study.  The students learned a tremendous amount about the Gulf of Mexico and Dauphin Island.  The trip was amazing and the students still talk about it today!
