MBAC’s New Year’s Resolutions

We are all anticipating a great 2013 and many of us are making resolutions to help us lose weight, spend more wisely, or make other positive changes in our lives.  At MBAC we have some resolutions of our own to improve programs, offer more services, and become a better organization.  We thought we’d share some of those resolutions with you and ask for your feedback on anything we may have missed.

University Credit Classes enrolling now

If you plan on taking an MBAC class this semester for university credit, now is a good time to add the unit and avoid having to use an add code or submit a late add form. MBAC’s semester-long University Credit Classes  are one of the best values at MBAC and a great way to get out on the water.

While taking the class for credit is optional, many SDSU and USD students take the class for a grade, or as a credit/no credit elective.  SDSU students earn 1 unit of credit in Exercise and Nutritional Sciences and USD students earn .5 units in Education Recreation for each University Credit Class class they complete.

You can certainly choose to show up to the first day and pick up an add code or have a late add form signed, but many students prefer the convenience of registering for the units in advance through SDSU’s Web Portal, or USD’s MySanDiego, and ensuring their spot in the class (SDSU American Language Institute students must add the unit via late add forms.)

Whether you take the class for credit, or just take it for fun, MBAC’s University Credit Classes are a great way to make your semester something special.

Marine trash collecting robot showcased at MBAC

San Diego, California News Station – KFMB Channel 8 – cbs8.com

The Rozalia Project was at MBAC this month showcasing it’s new trash hunting robot which helps to keep our bays and ocean clean.  The stop at MBAC was part of a nationwide tour to raise awareness and educate the public on keeping our waters clean.

Watch the robot search for trash on News 8

The robot found a few items around the dock area of MBAC, including a swim fin, and some kind of fisherman’s net, and had no problem bringing them to the surface for removal.  To learn more about the Rozalia Project or their mission to remove marine debris from the surface to the sea floor through action, technology, outreach and research visit thier website at www.rozaliaproject.org.
