December 2013 press release:
We are pleased to announce we received
funding from the Richard Lounsbery Foundation to provide
scientific 'cruises' for Boston inner-city students at no charge in May 2014.
Using Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's research vessel Tioga,
the Boston Harbor cruises will allow school groups to participate
in hands-on oceanographic activities and learn what scientists and
engineers do when they go to sea. The New England Aquarium will
provide additional educational content and logistical support. Thank you to the Lounsbery Foundation for making this possible.
If you are a Boston city school, please contact us to learn more about this program.
Our office and meeting place for schools is 97 Water Street, Woods Hole. It is about 500 feet past the drawbridge on the right. This is where classes should meet us to start their day.
