The SMMAS School Program now has five schools participating in our program to reach the next generation of Marine Hobbyist. Our goal is to teach these children about the dangers our natural reefs face today and what we can do as hobbyist to help.
Lexington Park Elementary School:
The Lexington Park Elementary School now has 2 tanks. Both are fish only with live rock (FOWLR) tanks. The first tank, a 35 gallon biocube, is in Mrs. Keuppers-Bradley's second grade class. The second tank, a 12 gallon nanocube, is in Mrs. Melissa Bean's fifth grade class. The students love the tanks and the clownfish!
