HCA 7th Grade Takes Science to the Sea

For the second consecutive year, Harrells Christian Academy seventh graders attended a 3-day environmental education program in Salter Path, North Carolina. This interactive science camp Called “Sound to Sea” is located on the Bogue Sound. While there, HCA students participated in various activities that focused on ocean and salt marsh life, forest and pond ecology, bird and mammal studies, sea turtle studies, and squid dissection.  In addition, the group participated in team building exercises and learned how to communicate more effectively.  All students learned about the different habitats of plants and animals through many hands-on experiences.  Another exciting part of camp was a mock town meeting which allowed students to represent an interested party such as locals, surfers, conservationists, business owners, or tourists, in a local beach development project. The seventh graders enjoyed participating in the mock meeting and learned what it takes for a town to make the best possible decisions for all concerned parties.
