The following are highlights from the Museum’s many activities throughout 2011:
The Museum's Education staff continued their outreach into the community through the highly-successful Seeing Science Everywhere program.
Curator of Mollusks Liz Shea, Ph.D., co-authored a paper on the biodiversity of the continental slope of the Gulf of Maine. This important research is part of a 10-year study to diversity of marine life in the region.
Extensive educational offerings included school tours, summer and holiday camps, scout and homeschool programs, preschool-style classes, birthday parties, and special events.
Special free days and promotions encouraged visitation by families that might otherwise not be able to afford admission.
College students gained practical experience related to their majors as interns and volunteers, while also maintaining and improving access to the collections.
Collections staff and volunteers managed specimen loans to researchers and institutions worldwide.
