Schools K-12 Outreach
The Gump Station and Atitia center welcomes high schools from Tahiti and Moorea. For example, undergraduates from the UC Berkeley field course have presented the results of their projects to students from the nearby Opunohu Agriculture High School. The result is an excellent exchange between American and Polynesian students.
The learning experience is in both directions - with guidance from UC professors, Opunohu school teachers, community elders and members of the Association Te Pu Atitia. In addition to the biological topics of common interests, the students get to practice their English, French and Tahitian.
