We were lucky to be treated to a trip to the Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland, Maine, to participate in their program, LabVenture– Lobster:Untold Tales. Students became scientists as they rotated through a series of four 20-minute investigations focused around lobsters, their importance, habitat, survival, and lobstering in the Gulf of Maine.
Students, please let us know what you thought? Answer the following questions and post your comment below:
- What is at least one thing you learned about lobsters during your visit?
- Why are lobsters important to the Gulf of Maine?
- What is at least one thing you learned about being a scientist or scientific investigations as you did your study?
