“The material taught in [Oysters & Water Quality] was advanced for my students. It was a topic that they had never been exposed to before. Despite the difficulty of the topic, the educators were able to break down the content and make it easy to understand. It was engaging and interesting for the students.” —11th Grade Teacher, Staten Island
