In early August 2011, 18 high school students from the Miami Science Museum's Upward Bound IMPACT program joined the RJD team at Broad Key research field station for 2 full days of marine-related activities. Students learned hands-on with shark tagging, kayaking, snorkeling on the reef and along mangroves, and an special presentation by Dr. Neil Hammerschlag.
