Created initially as an educational mural for Miami iPrep Academy, the large-scale artwork is a 2,000 square foot interactive seascape of native marine ecosystems and aims to provide students with the opportunity to engage in science through hands-on activities like mural painting, art classes, and webinars with scientists from the University of Miami Shark Research, University of Miami Coral Research, and Shark Education.
By adding this detailed pelagic scene to your home, you are directly supporting Florida marine science education for kids K-12.
Sea of Connections will be a beacon for curious minds. The completed mural will be filled with some of Florida’s most colorful and iconic creatures, many of which are located just a few miles away from the school. Linked via a QR code will be a knowledge base organized around the mural. The knowledge base will connect explorers to information on over 100 life-sized species found in the mural, highlighting information such as life-cycle and roles within their ecosystem. People will be able to tap on each species as it appears on the digital mural, or view the list of all species. Activity prompts will be scattered throughout, such as questions about behavior and clues to finding hidden species.
