See Class Schedule for exciting daily activities
June 24-28 | 9 AM — 1 PM
Explore the farm to discover creatures living in symbiotic relationships. Examine the pond and discover where the ocean comes into the back of the Bourne Farm property to see its effects on nature in that area.
TUESDAY—FALMOUTH ART CENTER:
Use various painting techniques to create beach and water-inspired papers, and incorporate them into mixed media art pieces. We will also discuss some American artists and how the sea impacted their artwork.
WEDNESDAY—FALMOUTH HISTORICAL SOCIETY / MUSEUMS ON THE GREEN:
Discover how Falmouth’s coastline led to maritime trade and how its economy, growth, and development were all intertwined with being a coastal community.
Students will spend the day with the internationally-renowned composer, violinist, and singer, Carla Kihlstedt. Through music, explore the powerful connection between humans and the ocean, including the important impact that humans have on the delicate ecosystems of the sea.
FRIDAY—NOAA/WHOI WOODS HOLE SEA GRANT:
Explore the microscopic world of plankton that makes up the base of the marine food web and gives us much of our oxygen. Students will examine their unique shapes and sizes, build their own plankton, participate in "plankton races," and go "behind the scenes" in Woods Hole Village.
