Using the creatures of the deep to get kids interested in science and technology.
It's an education program that's still going strong, more than 50 years later.
There's a national program that started back in the 60's and it's still going strong today.
It's the Migrant Education Summer Camp and as you'll see our Never Stop Learning report, this year it combines science and technology with the creatures of the deep.
This morning students are at Woodfin Elementary learning about the sting ray, the seal and other animals that live in the sea.
About 35 students who's families work in agriculture are taking part in the summer camp.
They research information about the different oceans and use math to compare and contrast the different sized animals that live there.
Each lesson is design for different grade levels ensuring that all of the students soak up as much knowledge as possible.
Each student will prepare a presentation to show off what they've learned this summer.
The migrant summer camp is a federally funded program.
