The fifth grade class at Saint Maximilian Kolbe School in West Chester (Chester County) will host a Zoom video conference with Fabian Cousteau, founder of the Fabian Cousteau Ocean Learning Center (FCOLC) and grandson of renowned oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. As the students began research for their own underwater city model, which is nearly complete, they were inspired by research done by Mr. Cousteau’s Ocean Learning Center. The class will have the opportunity to ask him questions and share with him what they’ve learned during this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) integrated project.
