Tue, 07/07/2020 - 2:00pm

The Boothbay Sea and Science Center (BSSC) is thrilled to share that their virtual program officially opened on Monday, June 29. This summer, youth ages 5-17 are coming together online to explore what lies between the surface and the seafloor, how weather impacts the habitats of the critters that live in the sea, where trash in the ocean comes from and where it goes, the stories that record and preserve Maine maritime history and tales of the sea, and how a boat is different from a ship.

The BSSC instructors have created an awesome summer program that fosters imagination and promotes creativity in all of their participants. The Center’s dockside touch tank and classroom saltwater aquariums are up and running providing the opportunity for an up-close look at the sea creatures that make their home in the Damariscotta River. Transitioning to a virtual platform, they have posted videos on the BSSC website that embraces the spirit of their uniquely integrated sea and science program. And in keeping with an onsite tradition, BSSC’s story time coming online soon.
