Since 2011, fifth-graders from St. Martin’s Episcopal School in Atlanta have donated more than $3,000 to UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium. The most recent donation of $1,000 was presented in April during the annual fifth-grade overnight field trip to UGA Aquarium. The money was raised through the school’s annual Cookie Company project, part of an interdisciplinary unit in which fifth-graders work in small teams to form cookie companies. They learn about advertising, website development, budgets, and they sharpen their math skills through calculating for large-batch baking. All of this takes place over 10 days, culminating with a school-wide bake sale. Over the years, UGA Aquarium has used the donations to purchase a variety of items, including a 15-person life raft, life jackets; life rings; a marine-grade hot water heater and refrigerator for the RV Sea Dawg; a VHF marine radio; a GPS Chart Plotter; and several anchors.
