    Charlotte Academy

    To Host Classroom Under The Sea Professors

    Charlotte Academy is pleased to host Professor Bruce Cantrell and Adjunct Professor Jessica Fain from Roane State Community College, Tennessee on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 10:00 am.  They will discuss their current project Classroom Under The Sea, where they will live and teach for approximately 72-73 days.  While underwater, Cantrell and Fain will offer the most unique educational experience in the college’s history and raise awareness of issues affecting the oceans. They will host a weekly program featuring interviews with leading scientists and explorers, covering topics such as conservation, undersea exploration and more. Roane State students in Cantrell’s fall online biology class will have an especially interesting experience; while they take the course online, their professor will be leading it from the floor of the lagoon at the Marine Resources Development Foundation’s facilities on Key Largo in the Florida Keys.

    Cantrell and Fain will discuss this project with 4th – 8th grade students at Charlotte Academy, who will be able to direct questions to both professors.  Students will then have the opportunity to interact with both professors as they host a weekly program and interview leading marine scientists and explorers.  The devastation of the coral population in the Caribbean will be one of the topics discussed.  The programs will be broadcast live and be available at no cost to schools.  The professors will be living underwater in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, their underwater habitat.  The lodge, which is located 21 feet below the surface of the sea at the Marine Resources Development Foundation on Key Largo, includes a wet room, two bedrooms and a common room.  According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record for living underwater is 69 days, 19 minutes and took place from May 6 – July 14, 1992.  Both professors hope to break this world record.

    Roane State is located in Harriman, Tennessee.  The college is partnering with the Marine Resources Development Foundation on Key Largo in the Florida Keys to offer Classroom Under The Sea. The foundation was created in 1970 with the goal of developing a better understanding of Earth’s marine resources. It has evolved into an organization with both an educational and scientific focus. Since 1985, nearly 5,000 students each year have been introduced to the ocean through the foundation’s MarineLab education programs.
