Around WHOI Sea Grant
The WHOI Sea Grant marine extension team has been teaching a class on the fundamentals of shellfish farming for over 20 years. During COVID, our education specialist Grace Simpkins helped update the curriculum and transition the program to the virtual world. In July, Grace Simpkins gave educators at the National Marine Educators conference the inside scoop on how to transition an in-person class to an online environment.
WHOI Sea Grant’s Leslie Jonas and Grace Simpkins were instrumental in bringing the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s Preserving Our Homelands camp to WHOI as part of an ongoing effort to develop knowledge exchange with the Tribe. Among other attractions, the campers learned about 3D printing & tested an underwater robot at WHOI’s AVAST lab. What a great day!
Can you visualize sea level rise? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! That’s why WHOI Sea Grant staffers Shannon Hulst and Grace Simpkins worked with high school art and science students on a visualization project. The students painted waves on five pilings in Millway Marina in Barnstable Harbor to designate future high tide levels.
We’re happy to report our 2023 Boat Shrink Wrap Recycling program was the best yet — collecting an amazing 22 tons. Transfer stations in Bourne, Chatham, Dennis, Eastham, Falmouth, and Wellfleet generously served as drop off locations. Thanks to their staffs for monitoring the wrap to be sure boaters properly cleaned and prepared it for recycling. Thanks also to Barnstable County’s Cape Cod Cooperative Extension and AmeriCorps of Cape Cod for their work in this group effort! Watch the video!
