HARRIMAN—Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second person to walk on the moon, will be among the guests appearing this fall on “Classroom Under the Sea,” an online show hosted by two educators living underwater for 73 days.
Roane State Community College biology professor Bruce Cantrell and adjunct professor Jessica Fain will live and work in an underwater habitat from October 3-December 15. The habitat, Jules’ Undersea Lodge, is located 25 feet down in the lagoon at the Marine Resources Development Foundation on Key Largo in the Florida Keys.
While in the habitat, where living space is the size of a dorm room, Fain and Cantrell will host weekly live episodes of “Classroom Under the Sea.” Aldrin will appear in the October 16 episode.
Roane State and the Marine Resources Development Foundation are partnering to present “Classroom Under the Sea” broadcasts. The first episode, titled “History of Man in the Sea,” will be Thursday, October 9 at 1 p.m. Eastern. [Read more…]
