  2. Looks like it will be a great trip!

  3. Hello,
    I would like get an update on how kids are doing. Thank you for this great opportunity you offered to our kids. Harir/Paya's mom

  4. I'd like to thank Mr. Brooks for an enriching experience at a young age. Although I've chosen a career that does not involve Marine science or life I always catch myself taking interest in similar fields (and beyond) during my leisure time. I wish to also have my kids go through a similar experience. Thanks Mr Brooks! - Ivan '91 (just surfing n reminiscing over the net)
