and is currently completing a Master's of Education degree at Murdoch University in Perth, focusing on enviromental education.
She implemented and taught Environmental and Outdoor Education to secondary school students in Australia and London, England.
Genevieve created the Class from the Sea
education program onboard the Odyssey and the Ocean Encounters initiative, bringing the 'live' experience
from the Odyssey directly to the classroom.
She researches and writes about the daily
experiences of the Odyssey, its crew, the ocean and its marine inhabitants.
This is broadcast via the daily logs on this website.
The R.V. Odyssey provides Genevieve with a unique platform
to teach from, as we are able to educate students from schools in remote
locations through the Class from the Sea program.
This includes bringing school groups directly to the Odyssey
as well as conducting outreach programs within local communities. A diving enthusiast, Genevieve
enjoys capturing the marine environment on video, translating the experience into the classroom.
