The Unstoppable Schools Project

Inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders through project-based learning.

Chasing Coral partnered with the Charleston County School District in South Carolina to launch the Unstoppable Schools Project. High school students formed small Research & Action Teams to tackle environmental issues in their own community.

Students in Action

  • 1500+ students experienced Chasing Coral


  • 400+ students engaged in Unstoppable Projects


  • 7 schools participated across the district

“Even after we graduate, the information gained from this project will help us continue to be a voice for reform in our society.”
– Unstoppable Student, Wando High School

With Chasing Coral’s own coral nerds as the inspiration, students across Charleston investigated local environmental challenges, took action, and publicly exhibited their work to raise awareness.

“I can definitely tell that students are better able to bring the content of the class to their lives because they see that science is something that is happening around them all the time.”
