Marine Biology class takes diving trip to Florida keys

February 2259, 2009 | Chase Replogle


“Science with Lab” is taken to a whole new level in Evangel’s Science and Technology Department. Marine Biology is a class that has recently been offered every odd-year spring semester. During the Spring-‘09 semester, students attended lecture, then, at the end of the semester, all 29 students traveled in rented vans with three professors to the Florida Keys for their “lab.”

During this amazing lab excursion, they camped on the beach at a campground in Marathon, Florida, and began by snorkeling along the Keys. By the end of the trip, they had taken three or four dives at the Looe Key marine sanctuary, including a nighttime scuba dive. They also took a dredge trip in Naples, Florida. In addition to these learning experiences in the water, the group also visited a wildlife park in Homosassa to view manatees. Another great thing about this trip is that the team has the opportunity to minister in the Assemblies of God church In Marathon, Florida.

The trip is open to students of any major who take the class for science credit.
