Today, we awoke at a prompt 7:15 am and strolled out to breakfast. It was a warm morning and we ate freshly cooked eggs from the comfort of our home. For our Oceanography class we had a guest speaker named Sarah Weiss.

Happy 4th of July! Today was an eventful day for us. We had class in the morning, like always. In our Oceanography class we learned about biological oceanography, specifically about different types of plankton.

Today, we had our first illustration class. We are going to use the skills we learned to properly document nature around us. Later, we learned about how Igneous rocks are made, and how they affect the environment around them.

Classes
Today was the first full day of SEASCape. We had our first Oceanography and Oceans and Society classes. In Oceanography, we talked about the different types of oceanography (biological, chemical, geological, physical, and human impact), the timeline of the scientific study of oceanography, and oceanographic gear. In Oceans and Society we are making “port stops” to different places in the world, roughly based on the Gulf Stream current.

Welcome to SEASCape!

SEA Semester

Welcome to the SEASCape Session 1 Blog! This will be updated daily by the students in pairs. For today, the students are just settling onto campus, so we (the student coordinators) have written the first blog post. Today, the students have gotten to move into their homes Bellatrix House or Capella House, and been assigned into one of four Watch groups.
