Education, 4R program and funding

August 29, 2013 – 08:56

It's hard to miss the educational focus to visit the Aquarium. All views have plates or touch screens with information about its inhabitants. Opened in 2006, the Aquarium will also have educational stations to provide extra information to the public. Tanks that can touch the animals give the opportunity for interaction. In several areas, projectors display information about the animals on the walls and floor. The aquarium also offers backstage tours, where visitors can see how the aquarium fish feeds and cares.

But beyond the areas visitors, 25% of Aquarius is facing research and education. The Learning Loop: space with learning labs and practical activities for students of different ages; encompasses an entire floor. The Learning Loop also offers classes in summer professional development for teachers. All educational programs take place in the Learning Loop, seperadamente of visitors to Aquarius. Officials estimate that 70, 000 students participate in programs every year.

The program 4R Aquarium is another way to search, save and improve the lives of fish in captivity and in the wild. The four Rs are: rehabilitation, relocation, rescue and research (in English, research, so the "4R"). Donations to the program include actions such as the rescue of Nico and Gasper and his relocation to Georgia. In this case, three people donated $ 50, 000 each, checked dollar for dollar by the community to rescue and relocate these animals.

As the Aquarium supports these programs, from food, shelter and viewing all these animals? We'll see where the money came from to build and maintain the aquarium in the next section.

Financing and maintaining the Aquarium The Georgia Aquarium began with the founder of Home Depot (shops "do it yourself"), Bernie Marcus. Marcus wanted to give a gift to the city of Atlanta and the State of Georgia: a gift that encouraged education and economic growth. In November 2001, he announced his plan to build an aquarium in downtown Atlanta. He and his wife Billi donated $ 250 million to build the Georgia Aquarium.

Advice Needed for Projector

Hi - I need some advice. I have an exhibition coming up & I need to project a video animation. I need to use a multi-media projector, but can not afford to buy a new one (& rentals for 1 month are extremely expensive). Does anyone have any ideas of where I can find a great deal or any other alternative for getting this type of equipment for a reasonable price???? Thanks.

  • Avatar angel2003 Where do I go to get a transparency made?

    I am trying to get a transparency made of a picture that I want to paint onto the wall. Where could I go to get that transparency made? Also, if you know the answer to a second part of my question...Where can I rent an overhead projector in Sicklerville, NJ?

    • I went to a print shop (not Kinkos). Call them first, ask if they do transparencies and then ask the cost. I think mine was $6 but that was a few years ago.

  • Avatar Sheldon Cooper I am wanting something like an overhead projector where I can project a picture onto a wall. Can I make one?

    I am talking about the simple things teachers used to use to project their notes on a wall. I am not talking about a movie projector.

    I want to paint a mural on a child's wall and want the projector to help transfer images from a coloring book to a wall.

    It seems like all I would need would be mirrors, a bright beam light and transparencies to make my own. Can anyone help me?

    • I once gave a talk where I wanted an "opaque projector" to project photographs from a book onto a screen. I asked teachers, rental places, churches -- every place I could think of -- and failed to find one. Eve …aintly with pencil, or by placing pencil dots where the corners fall. Then you copy the lines in each small square into its corresponding larger one. Dividing the picture this way helps preserve the existing proportions.
