Along with the traditional goals of Service-Learning (enhance undergraduate student learning, provide useful service for community partner), we added an additional goal of promoting The educational services (narration services at the exhibits and interactive games) aimed to fulfil Ocean Park’s goal of providing a richer visitor experience, as well as promote the message of marine conservation.
