LiMPETS is implementing student communication projects, like science blogging and filmmaking, aimed to take students beyond their monitoring experiences, deeper into the process of science. The goal is for teachers and students to think critically about their monitoring results and communicate the broader meaning of their work to a variety of audiences. Friends of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve provided LiMPETS with two GoPro cameras. A GoPro captures high-quality video, and in its waterproof housing, can withstand being dropped on the rocks, rolled in the sand, and pounded by waves. It’s durable, much like the tiny and tough intertidal denizens of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.
