I was immediately impressed with the science class GMRI provided for 6th graders. Honestly, I don't think I have ever seen children so excited about science!
Now that I've learned a little about GMRI, my wish is that its symbiotic relationship between education, research and the community continues to flourish.
The people involved with this organization are so committed not only to their work, but to the Gulf of Maine as a whole. They realize the importance of collaborating to achieve a common goal: A Healthy Ocean Stewarded by a Vibrant & Science Literate Community.
