The Island School Poster Series

The Island School is a High School abroad program located in the Bahamas on the island of Eleuthera. Each semester, all of its students participate in a field based research project run in conjunction with its sister institution, the Cape Eleuthera Institute. The CEI is a university level biological institute that hosts research projects covering a wide array of topics. The Island School students work on these projects conducting hands-on independent group projects. Each year at the end of the semester, the students present a summary of their findings to the public and government officials of The Bahamas. This special module within the Fisheries Presentation Library presents the posters produced by these students each semester summarizing the results of these studies.
