Cabrillo High School Aquarium

The Cabrillo High School Aquarium began as a partnership between a student, a teacher, and a local physician/amateur aquarist who agreed to sponsor the formers' science project -- The Warm Water Reef. This original partnership soon blossomed into hundreds of partnerships among students, teachers, district staff, and members of the business community - locally and nationally. Thousands of visitors including those in weekly guided tours from elementary students, have toured it's hands-on-learning laboratory. It's students receive scholarships to continue their studies in marine science and environmental studies. The program has received the President of the United States' Environmental Youth Award and the California School Boards Assoc. Golden Bell Award. It was recognized on the nationally televised "A Pledge And A Promise Environmental Education Awards" program as the most outstanding Marine Science Education Program.
