About this Grantee
Through a partnership with the Cincinnati Zoo, Miami University, and Project Dragonfly, Mrs. Randolph will travel to Belize to take part in Earth Expeditions. Mrs. Randolph will participate in investigations to monitor manatee population dynamics, human influence on coral reefs, and aquatic mangrove species sampling. Expedition leaders will emphasize use of inquiry based learning to generate knowledge of conservation. After the expedition, Mrs. Randolph will develop inquiry based science units to introduce students to marine ecosystems, problem solving through inquiry, and conservation themes.
