SENECA – Terry Maxwell, a science teacher at Seneca High School, set sail aboard the R/V Hugh R. Sharp on June 6 to assist scientists on a 16-day survey of Atlantic sea scallop populations off the northeastern U.S. coast.

Maxwell is participating in this cruise as part of NOAA’s Teacher at Sea program, which bridges science and education through real-world research experiences.

He boarded the R/V Hugh R. Sharp on June 6 in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Maxwell is writing a blog about his experience at http://shawurl.com/33dv.

Maxwell plans to incorporate this experience into his lessons to better engage his students in marine science.

Now in its 27th year, the program has provided nearly 750 teachers the opportunity to gain firsthand experience participating in science at sea.

This year, NOAA received applications from nearly 250 teachers, and chose 30 to participate in research cruises.
