First Wave offers kids a unique introduction to the incredible marine environment in our backyard. Students will learn the basics of Ecology through field studies, lab experiments, games, and hands-on activities. At the end of the week, students will take home a journal depicting all of the incredible organisms and environments they learned about.
The class is taught by 2 instructors and utilizes a 15-passenger van, allowing students to venture out on trips to Duxbury Bay, the salt marsh, Gurnet Lighthouse, or on one of DBMS’s skiffs to pull a lobster trap![/textbox]
