Gulf Stories 2
About the Course
In the second installment of Gulf Stories, you’ll explore a range of topics, from art and advanced manufacturing to citizen science and coastal ecology. Gulf Stories 2 follows the work of five University of West Florida faculty researchers and takes a close look at how we as humans interact with and affect our natural environment.
Total time commitment is roughly 10 hours and you can work at your own pace; there is no start or end date. Gulf Stories 2 is currently non-credit but may be offered for academic credit in the future. Teachers and administrators should note that content aligns with Florida Academic Standards.
