BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – Brevard Public Schools and state leaders are helping Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High School launched its new Aqua Science program.
Senator Debbie Mayfield and Representative Tyler Sirois joined School Board member Gene Trent, District 2, Superintendent Dr. Mark Rendell, and school leaders at the groundbreaking for the district’s newest Career & Technical Education program.
The groundbreaking is the latest step in expanding classroom and laboratory space for students.
The Cocoa Beach Aqua Science program began in August and offers an excellent educational opportunity for students interested in researching and solving problems related to the Indian River Lagoon or pursuing careers in Marine Biology or Environmental Science.
This program provides valuable hands-on experience right on the Cocoa Beach campus, with access to aqua tanks and a greenhouse.
Additionally, students will cultivate seagrass and raise oysters, clams, and mummichogs, which are fish found in the Indian River Lagoon.
Students participating in the program will have the opportunity to earn various certifications, preparing them to be leaders in this field upon graduation.
The Aqua Science program will work closely with the Brevard Zoo to provide student internship opportunities and real-world engagement with professionals in our community.
