The high school senior, who is also an eagle scout and football player, joined the 12th season of “Aqua Kids” in September 2016. “Aqua Kids” airs on stations ranging from Anchorage, Ala., to Tampa, Fla. The recently concluded 12th season is available in full on YouTube here
The show is produced by George A. Stover III, an adjunct instructor in Morgan State University’s School of Global Journalism and Communication. The program has been filmed in locations such as Lake Erie and Lake Superior, both Great Lakes, as well as Morgan State University’s Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Lab (PEARL), which aims to solve environmental challenges through research, education and applications.
One of PEARL’s current research projects includes studying the blue crab population in the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County.
“I had a great time teaching Jeremiah and everyone at home about the blue crab survey. Blue crabs are the heart and soul of the Chesapeake Bay. By closely monitoring the population, we can ensure that the Bay is home to plenty of crabs into the future,” said Adam Copeland, a PEARL researcher, in a statement.
