One group is taking full advantage of the short four weeks left in the summer. The young ladies of Girls Inc. are learning about the St. Andrews Bay ecology.
"Every experience we give the girls at Girls Inc. is another layer in their foundation and education foundation." Executive Director, Tammy Dunaway says.
"That's pretty amazing to come out here and learn more than what you expected...that's just amazing to me." Leah Marie Anglequic Hinds says.
Tuesday morning, more than 40 girls hopped aboard the St. Andrew Bay Ferry to live out a new adventure. The trip made possible by a NASA grant is teaching them about science, technology, engineering and math.
Throughout the summer, Kristin King, their newly certified teacher and long time volunteer opened their eyes to new things. "For some of these girls, it's the first time they've gotten to do this. You know they don't get to go on a boat every weekend and to see them and the dolphin coming so close to the boat and telling them to cheer on, I love it."
Girls Inc. is for ages between 6 and 18.
