Intro Ocean Science Trip to Allen

On October 3rd, 2021, Professor Twining from Bigelow Labratories, brought his Intro to Ocean Science class to Allen Island. On the island, the class discussed the collection of wave and environmental data, the impacts of wave energy on island coasts and geological formations and ecosystems, and the history of the Maine coast and economic aspects of like on an island.

Being able to take advantage of such a beautiful island to help visualize the material taught in class, as well as being able to be taught by a world renouned scientist from a world renouned research lab (for an introduction class nonetheless) is one of the many reasons why we at Colby are so priviledges to be here. In taking advantage of every resource availible, Colby students are setting themselves up to be leaders in whatever field they decide to go in.
