PBRC researcher Dr. Angel Yanagihara and William Gillan, educator at Boynton Beach High School, have produced an interesting and educational video, The Science of the Sting, featuring Yanagihara's research program on the box jelly and a discussion of her experience as a research scientist.
Developed with funding from the Mary and Robert Pew Public Education Fund, this outreach project promotes STEM education in public schools and is targeted for middle school students (grades 6-9). The video serves as inspiration for young students to pursue their interests in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The video has already been incorporated into the curricula of Boynton Beach and Palm Beach County schools.
The Science of the Sting can be viewed on Vimeo.
