The Education Department was delighted to have assistance from
Paul Smith, a Warwick Academy student, on June 18th and 19th.

Paul helped put together material for upcoming summer camps, developed an age appropriate scavenger hunt for the exhibits, shadowed a number of tours and was shocked to learn about the severity of our lionfish problem in Bermuda.
