Today bloggers publish just about gossips and internet and this is really frustrating. A good site with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thanks for keeping this web site, I’ll be visiting it

A six week shore component in Woods Hole, MA was followed by six weeks of sailing from Florida, through the Caribbean, up to Bermuda, then Nova Scotia and back to Woods Hole. We collected oceanographic data along the way and had individual research projects in addition to other studies (and learning how to sail!). I knew this type of program was for me because I spent the previous summer studying fish recruitment to artificial reefs on the island of South Caicos in a School for Field Studies program. Many years later my niece studied wildlife management in Kenya through the same school.
So, while not everyone may get a chance to visit the Bold there are programs and opportunities available, even for high school students, to experience oceanography and other types of field work first hand. This is a great way to figure out if you’d like to someday be a scientist on the Bold or elsewhere. Leave the classroom and get into the field – you’ll be happy that you did!
