...Derek RamseyDerek Ramsey is Head Curator of Communications and Public Relations.
Derek's love for the ocean and curiosity resulted in him being accepted into the Marine Technology Institute
sophomore year.However, it was during his junior year that he really showed that he had what it takes to take on the tremendous task of being an Aquarium Head Curator.
That year, Derek
instructed the 5th grade water density labs that we host throughout the school year.He also played a leadership role in designing and hosting the JASON Project 2007 "Monster Storms" tours in which we hosted local 4th grade classes.Derek
has many great goals to improve the program and we look forward to working with him this year.As an ambassador of the Cabrillo High School Aquarium he is actively sought out by the community and beyond to speak about the many facets of the Aquarium program.Derek
is going to be a senior and plans on going to a university, preferably Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California.He
plans on studying civil, structural, or architectural Engineering."I really want to get a well rounded education so I can utilize every aspect of it in the real world.That is one of the reasons why I am in the tourism program."He
plans on using the things he
learns in this program for a great advantage toward success.For a side thing he also likes graphic design or things like the website which he is also the coordinator of.
I like to see things that I have actually contributed to and made them happen.
For Derek's senior project he
is Designing and building a "Wet Laboratory" in a 12' x 30' room that can be used by the ROV
team, students, and teachers.
