Huge Field Trip Day

Lana Lines & Jack Ryan, Brookline High School & Minuteman High School

SEA Semester

Our day began with cheesy beany breakfast courtesy of Jasper. We packed our lunches and hit the road. Our first stop was the Mashpee Wampanoag Museum, which took one hour to reach by bus, and had a good parking lot for playing games while we waited to go in.

First Free Day!

Emerson Jenen & Sydne Twarosch, Bronx High School of Science & Pioneer Valley Performing Arts School

SEA Semester

Today was Sunday! That meant that we had no classes and could sleep in. Now we did what any sensible person would do. Many of the attendees of SEASCAPE got our nails painted by each other. The colors that we painted nails with were blue, green, white, sparkly pink, and a light pink. Later, many of us wanted to see a new movie called Spiderman: Far From Home.

Beach Day but with Science!!!

Karina Iman & Maya Langer, Horace Mann High School & Jack M Barrack Hebrew Academy

SEA Semester

We started the day with some carrot cake bread and oatmeal, an auspicious start!  Picking up trash was decidedly less appetizing, but more informative. Fortunately, the beach we gathered trash from was pretty clean so it wasn’t too much work.

Fisheries and beaches and knowledge oh my!

SEA Semester

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.

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.

Sippewissett Salt Marsh

Jillian Paquette & Rose von Eckartsberg, Moses Brown School & Yorktown High School

SEA Semester

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.

The Sun Sets on SEASCape Session 1

Jeremy Green & Maria Pagliaro, Edmund Burke School & Sacred Heart Academy

SEA Semester

It seems like only yesterday this blog was talking about our first full day, then our halfway point, but today we completed the final full day of SEASCape Session 1 2018. There have been laughs aplenty, much sweat and grime, maybe a little bit of blood, and some tears, with more to come.

Last Day of Classes

Grace Levins & Bryce Menichella, Easthampton High School & Charlotte Country Day School

We started the day by being able to sleep in until 8. We had breakfast, did chores, and had our final watch meetings with Phoenix and Orion. After that we headed for oceanography which was a student choice set of lessons.

Live chat with the International Space Station

SEA Semester

Highlights from our live chat with NASA astronaut (and former Sea Education Association Assistant Scientist) Ricky Arnold aboard the International Space Station. Among other topics, he reflected upon his experiences with SEA saying, “There’s nothing I’ve done in my life that prepared me better for my experience up here.”
