Discover Seaweed / Kelp in the Classroom
Although Amanda loves being out in the ocean among the kelp, she is equally passionate about teaching people about our local seaweeds and the enormous health benefits they possess. Amanda has had over ten years of experience teaching to a very diverse audience. She has taught in both elementary and high schools, at the University of Victoria and Royal Roads University, Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre as well as to private groups. Amanda holds a Bachelor of Science degree with an advanced major in Marine Biology and a minor in Oceanography from Dalhousie University. She attended a seaweed intensive with Dr. Louis Druehl of Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre and received credits while attending the 2011 annual symposium of the Phycological Society of America.
Amanda presented at Slow Fish, Terra Madre Salone del Gusto in Turin, Italy in 2016 and at the Phycological Society of America Annual Meeting, Monterey, California in 2017.
