SEASCape 2017 Summer Olympics

Tasha Greenwood, RA, C House

SEA Semester

Today dawned bright and sunny; a perfect ending to the week. We started the day with a time-honored SEA tradition - FIELD DAY. In this case, Field Day means a Deep Clean of all the cottages, sweeping, swiffering, and scrubbing our homes from top to bottom. At the same time, students had their final meetings with program faculty. Once the houses were looking spiffy clean, we broke for lunch. Post-lunch, we had the graduation ceremony, where every student received their SEA pin.

Last Day of Classes

Jill Powers & Ashwin Padaki, Andover High School & Lexington High School

SEA Semester

We had an early wake up today at 6:30, followed by a hearty bowl of cereal of our choice. We then had one large watch meeting before oceanography class with Maia. This morning, we had a guest speaker, Susan Humphris, who used to work at S.E.A. for thirteen years, but now works at WHOI. She talked about hydrothermal vents, and their impact on ecosystems and nearby life. She also introduced us to Alvin and other interesting sea-submersible technologies.

Geology, Whales, and Marbles!

We began with a class with Maia, focusing on Geological Oceanography. We learned about ocean basin mapping, mid-ocean ridges, and sediments. Then we had class with Dan the man, focusing on the Age of Exploration, the discovery of gyres, seasonal winds, and currents.

Extreme Whale Watch

Mira Anderberg & Elsie Dilisio, Lexington High School & Monument Mountain Regional High School

SEA Semester

We were woken up at the extremely early hour of 6:30 in the morning. We then quickly ate and did our chores and then headed onto the bus. We traveled for about an hour until we reached Plymouth MA: the home of Plymouth rock. However, we were not just there to see the rock in the ground, we were also there to be on a whale watch. We waited in line for what felt like forever and then aggressively boarded the boat to secure the “best” seats.

The Last Sunday

Isabelle Stacks and Elizabeth Gutierrez, Newton South High School and Denver South High School

SEA Semester

As this is our last Sunday at SEASCape, we had many options for activities to participate in during the day.  We began with a wonderful breakfast at 9:00 am of eggs, bacon, coffee, and English Muffins.  Some of us had the opportunity to tie dye if we had previously disliked our first tie dye shirts, and a few others decided to join in by tie dying their own shirts.

Ocean Acidification, Whaling Conventions, and Sheets

Chiara Rizzuti and Maggie Nye, Liceio scientifico statale Leonardo da Vinci School and The Urban School of San Francisco

SEA Semester

Today we woke up at 6:30 and after the usual chores, we had our watch meetings and learned how to tie a bowline knot. While some of us were able to complete the knot right away, some struggled to tie it. The RA’s challenged some of us to tie the knots in weird and creative ways such as, tying it behind the back, with our feet, and by closing our eyes.
