SaintJoe H2O is the learning network for the Saint Joseph Marine Institute. The "Saint Joseph Marine Institute," (SJMI) is the name for a unique high school program in the field of Marine Biology within the Saint Joseph School District. The program takes place after normal school hours. Our old static website dates back to 1999, and can be found here. For the visual addict in you... click here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 to view thousands of images from our last five field studies in the Bahamas and Florida Keys.
As you might be able to tell, this will likely be the final year of using this platform for our class. We will likely be making the jump back to an open Wordpress site in the near future.
Saturday, March 23rd, 2013Yesterday we arrived at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to begin our adventure miles from home. Around 12:30 PM, 7 of us loaded a small plane with a pilot named Eddie (I got to be co-pilot!) and we set flight over the ocean. The ocean is simply breathtaking and magnificent. Looking the 5,000 feet down to the shades of blue wasn't full of much to look at but I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I was looking for something to strike my eye, to jump out of the water...SOMETHING!…Continue

Use the thread below as a gallery space for your reflection of Chapter 4, "The Outer Strands." You have full freedom in how to reflect on this one... Sci-Po, Visual Chapter Summary, traditional, etc. That said, remember, stick to a protocols. There is power in protocols, for they often force our thinking toward a more creative level. This, of course, seems ironic before trying... but I think you'll soon see what I mean by that.…Continue

Use the thread below as a gallery space for your visual chapter summary over Chapter 3, "Darwin In Paradise," from The Enchanted Braid- Coming to terms with nature on the coral reef. Remember, stick to the protocol. There is power in protocols, for they often force our thinking toward a more creative level. This, of course, seems ironic before trying... but I think you'll soon see what I mean by that.…Continue
Use the space below to add in a story about your species of choice. Feel free to use your presentation tool of choice for this particular task. When complete, we should have a nice thread of resources highlighting a handful of some of the most commonly consumed seafood species... or perhaps even a few of the most interesting for perhaps another reason. Either way, please either embed your story below, or directly link to it in another location.Continue
Have you ever played the game 20 Questions? For many, the first question you learn to ask is: “Is it animal, mineral or vegetable?” It is probably a good thing you were never confronted with living coral as a challenge in this game, since the answer to that question would have to be a frustratingly simple, "yes." Such is the the…Continue
Colt's recent update on his life has inspired me to also update everyone on my shenanigans. I am not living in the beautiful wilderness of Alaska, but I am living in the concrete jungle of Washington D.C.
So, since I last checked in, I finished my dissertation research at the University of Rhode Island and am in the process of publishing my results. If all goes as planned, I will be Dr. Nicole Rohr in May with a Ph.D. in Biology! Here is my first chapter in case you are…Continue
Wow so its been awhile since I have updated this blog... I don't know a lot of the people on here anymore... let me quick introduce myself to some of the people who might not know me... I'm Colt Snapp, a 2006 graduate of Benton High School and was part of the 2005 and 2006 Marine Biology Classes. I recently graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelors degree in Marine Biology. I have been through many internships and jobs through my college career which you can read about on my…Continue
