Shark Cams & SEA trivia
Today we had a guest speaker, Amy Kukulya, a leading engineer behind shark cam at WHOI. She talked to us about her career pathways and aspirations in engineering and other fields such as environmental policy. She described many difficulties she has had to face in the field, like being the only female in a white male environment. Her talk was very inspirational and eye-opening for all of us.
After this we had Oceans & Society where we learned about transatlantic cables and communication. Later we reviewed our ship narratives and played a game of jeopardy.
In our free time we all went to either Quissett Harbor to snorkel or Racing Beach to swim. This was our last beach trip unfortunately, but we made the most of it and had a mini photo shoot! We ended our day with a game of trivia that quizzed us on knot tying, the RAs, oceanography, and house rules.
