A Whale of a Time

Gordon's Marine Biology Institute (MBI), offered every even-numbered year, was offered as a May Term class this spring. Four students took part this year, spending six to eight hours a day exploring New England waters learning about their chemistry, animals, plants, and molecular biology. Several members of the science faculty participated as guest lecturers. One of the highlights of their three weeks together was their whale watching trip. Curtis Pope, a junior taking the course for core science credit, remarked, "I can't believe we got credit to go whale watching!" Pictured here are two of the students from this year's MBI watching the waters for sings of whales. Learn more about the Marine Biology Institute.
