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.
