At the Reef Ball Foundation, we believe in education. After all, the reefs we build will be around for centuries and it is our children that will gain the most from what we do today to save our ocean ecosystem. We feel it is vital to teach children the importance of the ocean ecosystem to enable them to protect their children's future too.


We have miniature molds that allow young folks to build their own miniature Reef Balls. These can be placed in the water for observation and experimentation. Many classrooms have aquariums where the models can be placed. This is an excellent hands on project for kids of all ages. They actually take ownership in the project and watch it evolve before their very eyes. The whole process of working with concrete alone is worth the project. But learning about what's underwater is what it's all about. Create a new lesson plan or use one from another teacher- it's up to you.

Small Sized Reef Balls

Many programs are even building real reefs made from our smaller modules like the Bay Ball, Lo-Pro Ball and Oyster Balls (The Boy Scouts of America, Spanish River High School, The Walker School, 4-H, Jacksonville High School, Mandarin High School, Martin County Schools, etc.). They are easy to make even when you have to mix the concrete in a wheelbarrow. We have contacts, just about everywhere, to hook you up with the governmental artificial reef coordinators so that your kids will have a place to put the Reef Balls when they are made. Our grant program will supply these molds for free so don't just think about it, get involved.

Guest Speakers

If we have volunteers in your area, they will gladly come and speak to your classroom. If not, we have videos available that you can show in the classroom.

If your business would like to sponsor a Reef Ball program locally or globally we can set up an educationally sponsored program for your company. It generates great publicity for your company and the publicity also raises environmental awareness to the public and the kids. It's good for everybody.
