Funded by the South Carolina Sea Grant Program, I conducted surveys of peoples' knowledge of rip currents along Myrtle Beach, SC, and Pawley's Island, SC. A local news channel met us during our surveys to record a clip for the evening news.

This experience helped me improve my social skills with the general public and tested my knowledge as I was able to answer difficult questions regarding the contents of the survey.
