During the winter...
CSCR high school students will be reconvening with their summer research teams to analyze their data and present their findings in our signature event, The State of the Harbor, date TBA. We look forward to your authentic participation.
Middle Schoolers are continuing to meet on Tuesdays, from 3:30-5:30, with Susan Bryant. They have been studying Bassing Beach Island and whether it will bounce back after being washed over by last winter’s storms. New students are still welcome.
Adults can support innovative education on our Innovation Team, by mentoring students, or by supporting CSCR financially. If you missed our Project Based Learning Summit you can see the video here. If you'd like to help please contact jbuckley@ccscr.org.
Upcoming opportunities for students, teachers and people who care about our local coast and experiential education are publicized via emails from Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research, if you are on our mailing list, and by REMIND text messages which you can sign up for by texting "@cscr" to the number 81010. You can find us on facebook, twitter and instagram @cohassetcscr and in the Cohasset Mariner.
Reports and photos of this year's summer research projects will be up soon. They include
  • Watershed & Water Quality,
  • Marine Debris
  • Drifters for Monitoring Local and Ocean Currents,
  • Board of Health Bacteria Testing,
  • Eelgrass
  • Shellfish Surveys
  • GIS, and independent studies on Ocean Acidification, Pollution in the Gulf River, and Phragmites Surveys.
  • Our middle school researchers in the Junior Research Program examined the resiliency of our barrier beach, and began cataloging local biodiversity.
We will be hosting another State of the Harbor event in Spring (date TBD) for students to authentically share their findings with the public.
We welcome your participation in creating a vibrant community for this coast. Join us!
If you join us in being grateful for outdoor experiences and science research, for having the freedom to explore, for a great harbor and estuary to access, please consider funding CSCR programs. We also welcome guest lecturers, activity leaders, administrative services, advisors, maintenance help and mentors.
