Globalheartbeat is a unique project that brings together young people and scientists  through a partnering of universities, community colleges, research institutions, schools and aquariums.

In 2007 - 2008 academic year the project will become a truly evolving, participative, environmental monitoring and understanding activity. The project is NOT one that must fit ongoing research, but your participation will develop the project...and not packaging. You are a part of creating facilitated design and implemention.



2007-2008 Thomas Jefferson High School continues to use the program in their oceanography classes.
