The Original 100-Gallon Classroom Touch Tank
The Original100-Gallon Classroom Touch Tank was designed by Jean Giberson, an elementary school teacher from West Harpswell, Maine. Jean used aquariums as educational tools for years with aggravating success. Common aquariums were hard to maintain with their durability suspect. Jean had a vision of a better aquarium-a durable water lab that was easy to maintain and interactive so that her students could get up close and personal with some of the intriguing creatures that call the ocean home. She searched everywhere for a manufacturing company or aquarium designer to help with her project.
