Project Description

A photo-realistic 3D interactive software simulation, to help stream line the education of potential/current coral growers and or commercial coral farmers. The simulation also includes a screensaver component, comparable to the distributed computing screensaver SETI. The simulation demonstrates the effects of the environment on the growth of coral.
