  • CSCR's Lecture Series begins Nov 6 with Rob Moir

Nov. 6, 2019 - 7-8pm

Rob Moir, Executive Director of the Ocean River Institute, speaks on 'Sinking Ocean'

The ocean is under assault on a number of fronts. Two of the most egregious are excessive nitrogen that feeds harmful algal blooms to create ocean dead zones, and excessive carbon dioxide (climate change) that is making the waters more acidic. To save the ocean we need to better understand it, become more ocean literate. We must also be respectful of the awesome amount we do not know. Discover what you can do in your backyard and out into communities to save the ocean. Dr. Moir will illustrate his talk with images from last summer’s sail from Iceland across the Denmark Strait to Nuuk, Greenland.
Hope to see you at this great Nov. 6 event at CSCR!
 


 
State of the Harbor 2020-
more info coming soon.  

  

Here are just a few of the comments from the State of the Harbor Forum 2019 written in response to the keynote address by Dr. Patrick Sullivan, the rising Supt of Cohasset Public Schools (July 1).

"I liked his amazing out of the box approach to utilizing the town's assets in education."

" I liked how he talked about hands-on learning. More hands-on education could be a great benefit to our academic performance." (8th grade student)

"I liked the ideas to collaborate more with the schools and to help connect the town of Cohasset to the schools a bit more." - a student

"I liked the connection between the schools and the harbor." Tim Davis

"I liked learning about the SEL components- it's really important to gain those skills because if you can't function that way, it doesn't matter what you know."

"I liked hearing about the important role of communication and collaboration in solving environmental problems."

"Having a collaboration between CHS and CSCR is invaluable. If kids had more time- independent study- to have real world tech/ science/ real world experiences, then a large amount of kids would create a personal project. Having an independent study time during school- kids are very busy!

Don't miss out!
