About the Curriculum

“Virtual Exploration of Georgia’s Coastal Wetlands” is a curriculum created by UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant and designed to connect high school students to the coast from right inside their classrooms.

The curriculum will empower students to become better stewards of coastal ecosystems and better understand the benefits of and threats to Georgia’s watershed resources.

The curriculum features a Virtual Reality (VR) field trip to wetland sites along the Georgia coast. This field trip is accompanied by lessons related to salt marsh ecology, human impacts on the environment, natural hazards and resiliency. Each lesson can be delivered independently of one another or together as a series.
