News lead…:

“This fall, Roane State associate professor of biology Bruce Cantrell and adjunct instructor Jessica Fain plan to live and work under the sea for 72 days. While underwater, Cantrell and Fain will offer the most unique educational experience in the college’s history and raise awareness of issues affecting the oceans. They will host a weekly program featuring interviews with leading scientists and explorers, covering topics such as conservation, undersea exploration and more. Roane State students in Cantrell’s fall online biology class will have an especially interesting experience; while they take the course online, their professor will be leading it from the floor of the lagoon at the Marine Resources Development Foundation’s facilities in Key Largo, Fla.”
