In the past year on the boat the Doolin-Rogers, thousands of students learned about marine-related careers and recreational opportunities. They conducted experiments, operated underwater robotics and studied animals and plants in local estuaries.
“We had a wonderful time introducing kids to all the opportunities connected to the water,” said Tom Rogers, YMF co-founder and board president. “We’re eager to expand the programs and reach even more students.”
