The view out the window of Jules’ Undersea Lodge, where professor Bruce Cantrell will teach his online class, BIOL 2600 Biology Seminar: Living and Working Under the Sea.

 

Students, you have an opportunity to participate in one of the most unique educational experiences Roane State has ever offered.

All you have to do is sign up for the Web class BIOL 2600 Biology Seminar: Living and Working Under the Sea.

This fall, Roane associate professor of biology Bruce Cantrell and adjunct instructor Jessica Fain plan to live and work under the surface of the sea for 72 days. They will live in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, located at the Marine Resources Development Foundation's facilities in Key Largo, Fla.

While underwater, Cantrell and Fain will host a weekly program, titled Classroom Under the Sea, featuring interviews with leading scientists and explorers.

In addition, Cantrell will offer the college-credit course, BIOL 2600.

That’s right. While you take an online class on living and working under the sea, your professor will ACTUALLY be living and working under the sea.

The course will introduce students to the who, what, where, why and when of underwater habitation. Particular attention will be given to the “golden age” of underwater habitation during the 1960s and 70s. Students will also develop an appreciation for the importance of underwater habitation in today’s world.

Do not wait to sign up. Only 30 spots are available. Register today for BIOL 2600 Biology Seminar: Living and Working Under the Sea.

Sign up in RaiderNet.
