Join Mystic Aquarium and New England Science & Sailing, as we take an in-depth look into the impact we as humans have on the Earth and how we can make small, yet important changes in our own lives to better our environment. In this program you will spend the first 4 weeks at the Mystic Aquarium exploring the exhibits and getting up close with their inhabitants as we try to discover how the choices we make every day can affect ecosystems and organisms found around the world. The second 4 weeks will be spent at New England Science & Sailing in Stonington, on environmental topics relating to local ecosystems and the species inhabiting them. In addition we will look towards popular green technology and innovation, while learning to make some changes to directly influence our own homes. Weather permitting, 2 classes in May will be spent utilizing a boat to take us into the field to investigate the ecological footprint we cast on our environment as humans while learning how we can make knowledgeable choices for the future.
Details: 4 weeks at the Mystic Aquarium; 4 weeks at NESS; 2 boat trips included
