Image Picker for Section 0

​PAC grant recipient, Marth Carothers from the department of Art and Design, partnered with Danielle Dixson from the School of Marine Science and Policy and Danielle Ford form the School of Education to create a fun way for elementary school students in the state of DE to learn about their local ecosystem and aquatic life.   The resulting storybooks were created during the 2019 spring semester by University of Delaware undergraduate Art & Design, Elementary Teacher Education, and Marine Science students through the collaborative courses, ART309: Book Arts and EDUC367 & MAST367: Science Through Storybooks.  The storybooks highlighted two species that greatly rely on Delaware's beaches, horseshoe crabs and sandpiper birds. Through a partnership with Brookside Elementary School, Elementary Teacher Education students had the opportunity to share the storybooks with 60 first grade students.
