Students Learn About the Ocean

A trip to the beach seems like a nice vacation for some -- but many kids don't get the opportunity to experience all the science and beauty the ocean has to offer.

A woman in San Diego, California hopes to help change that by helping children who live just a few miles from the pacific -- discover the ocean as a living science laboratory.

Let's travel to the west coast and meet Shara Fisler.
