SCHOOL Reef – Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School

In honor of Ocean Day, we also want to share news about another astonishing sister reef that is evolving in San Jose. This one is being made by a class of seventh graders at the Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School. Under the encouragement of their science teacher Michael Harms, the 48 children have been inspired by the IFF's efforts to crochet their own reef. They have done this all without asking for instructions or guidance from us and we are simply astounded by their initiative and inventiveness. The IFF applauds both these wonderful efforts and looks forward to watching these two sister reefs evolve. More information and photos about both projects will soon be available on this website. Stay tuned.
