We saw ALVIN! “No, not the chipmunk…”

Libbie Barnes and Bettina Hammer, Crockett High School and St. Johnsbury Academy

SEA Semester

We woke up this morning to pancakes (both plain and chocolate chip) prepared by our awesome cook Marissa. After completing various chores, we headed out to Woods Hole for our final field trip. First stop was the Smith building, a part of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI). Our tour guide Chad walked us through the halls,where we got to peek into windows and see oceanographic equipment like the remotely operated vehicle, named Remus. Then came the highlight of the day: ALVIN!!

A Day Off!

Chase Robinson and Allie Seminer, Agnes Irwin School and Niskayuna High School

SEA Semester

Another sleep in felt fantastic, especially starting on a day off. Waking up to the smell of fresh french toast and strawberries was also a HUGE plus. Awake and ready for competition, each house (A,B and C) contributed in a baking contest. House A, making whale shaped Nutella swirl cupcakes, House B making cheesecake, and House C making Banana nut muffins. All would then be presented to our RA’s (Resident Advisor) to taste and judge.

Salty Saturday

Julie Goldberg and Sacha Orlowski, Wachusett Regional High School and Dobbs Ferry High School

SEA Semester

We started off the day bright and early with a yummy breakfast of oatmeal and cereal, with chocolate chips and raisins on the side. Then we headed to an early morning class with Carl, discussing the history of science. We went in depth into the interesting transformation of science throughout the years, starting with the Enlightenment period, throughout the European exploration of the Americas, up to present day.

TGIF

Alex Saad and Amanda Wan, Ann Arbor Pioneer High School and Belmont High School

SEA Semester

After a long week of early wake-ups, we finally had the opportunity to sleep in an hour later with a wake up call at 8:30. Waking up, after much needed sleep, refreshed our minds in preparation for a long and productive day. We started our day with an admissions councilor for the SEA Semester trips who talked to us about the opportunities they offered us as undergrads.

We Had a Trashy Day

Rachel Knauerhase

SEA Semester

We woke up bright and early to a breakfast of eggs and toast. We went to the classroom and were met by Jeffrey Brodeur who spoke to us about plastics in the ocean. Then we all walked to Racing Beach with Jeff and did a beach clean up. In total we all collected 36 pounds of trash, comprised of 1036 pieces. Next, we went back to campus for free time and a lunch of grilled cheese.

Baseball!

Annie Curtis-Dyck, St. Clements School

SEA Semester

We began our day with a nice bowl of cereal and had little time before our very busy day of classes began. The first class that we had focused on ocean conflicts and the importance of the navy in today’s society, as well as in the past. After this, we had the pleasure to hear a lecture by Greg Bergman about Cape Cod geology in which we learned about the erosion that is occurring and the prevention methods that are being used throughout this region.

Whale, That Was Fun

Sophia Spring and Erin Leathrum, Stoneleigh-Burnham School and Jacksonville High School

SEA Semester

Today started with an early morning wake up… it was terrible. However, after witnessing the majestic sight of breaching whales, our day became magical and wonderful. Our awe inspiring sea vessel, Tails of the Sea, took us from the wharf in Plymouth to the vast and mysterious marine sanctuary called Stellwagon Bank.

Salt Marsh Day

Maya Lombardi and Agatha Tatang, Norfolk County Agricultural High School and Bishop O'Connell High School

SEA Semester

We started our day off with pancakes and cantaloupe. Then, we prepared to travel to the nearby salt marsh. We spent two hours taking sediment samples in the rain and trudging through the water. But, we had a lot of fun! We saw lots of small shrimp and krill, as well as hermit crabs and fish. We also saw clams and oysters. Sadly, we had to stop early because there was thunder in the distance.

A day in Falmouth!

Kevin Brown, Inter-Community School

SEA Semester

Today we got to wake up late, at 9:25, instead of waking up at 6:45. Sleeping in was amazing and Marisa prepared a delicious brunch for us. At noon some of us went to Falmouth and some of us went to watch the movie Ant-Man. In town we all split up into small groups and had the opportunity to explore the rich town of Falmouth. In addition we were able to do some shopping and eat some different cuisines. There was French, Mexican, Italian food and much more.

A Great Day

Charlotte Brennan and Anna Smith, Locust Valley High School and John Jay High School

SEA Semester

This morning we were awoken to the sound of crows outside saying “Good morning!” Our wonderful cook, Marissa, served us some fresh bananas and toasted bagels. It was delicious! Then we trudged up the hill to the Madden Center to start classes for the day! First, we had Maritime History and we designed ships with our amazing and always informative teacher, Carl. Some students had very original ideas such as a float in movie theatre and a boat with a glass hull to observe coral.
