Thankful for an enjoyable and educational summer
Despite the hardships of Covid-19, BSSC was able to guarantee all of its interns with jobs for the summer of 2020. Many internship programs were canceled completely due to the outbreak. BSSC allowed the staff to have a fun summer job where we gained sailing, powerboat, and maintenance skills. In addition, we were able to run our summer camp program with children through zoom and seesaw activities.

I can't wait to see what the summer of 2021 has to offer
This summer was great! Given the opportunities that we had due to COVID-19, BSSC made the best of what they could do.

I can’t wait to see what the summer of 2021 has to offer.

We all had a great time
While this summer was a bit unusual, we all had a great time at the Center learning a bunch of useful skills on boats and in the classroom. Having kids on Zoom was a blast and I’m so glad we were able to make this summer work for all of our students.
My Experience at BSSC
This summer has been unlike any other with all of the obstacles that COVID-19 has thrown at the world. The strict regulations and guidelines regarding this virus have made it challenging for summer educational camps for kids to stay open. The Boothbay Sea and Science Center, however, has found a way to engage the kids through Zoom and ‘Seesaw’, a virtual learning platform. My name is Olivia Harriman and I was a science instructor here at the center this summer in East Boothbay, Maine. I had … Read more
Spirit and Community of BSSC was alive
Although BSSC was executed through an online platform this summer, the quality of instruction did not fall short. I am blessed to have worked alongside a hardworking and dedicated team to make this summer equally productive, engaging, and enriching for both staff and students. Despite the barrier of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, the outreach to students over Zoom and Seesaw kept the spirit and community of BSSC alive. Together we were able to build our online educational presence for future summer… Read more
