    Modeling Change

    5:30 - 7 PMGulf of Maine Research Institute, Portland Maine

    GOMMEA’s next event is just around the corner on Monday, December 9th, 5:30-7:00pm at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. “Modeling Change,” the Cohen Center’s newest LabVenture program, will be shared in a free, private event. We are pleased to share this opportunity with the Maine Environmental Education Association (MEEA). Together we are making a difference throughout the state and the Gulf of Maine!

    Our December 9th event is free, but not open to the public; you must pre-register here.

    From Gulf of Maine Research Institute and LabVenture: 

    Over the last decade, our LabVenture program has provided hands-on science learning to over 150,000 Maine middle schoolers. During that time, these students’ parents and other adults have always asked, “When can I do LabVenture?!”

    For the first time, we’re rolling out a LabVenture experience specifically developed for the public. Modeling Change is a 90-minute exploration of past and future ecosystem change in the Gulf of Maine. Guests will look forward and back at the impacts of ocean warming in our bioregion through the lens of two key species: lobsters and black sea bass.

    Ecosystem modeling is a way for us to understand the relationships between species and their environment, and help us to project what the Gulf of Maine will look like in the future. Guests will get to experience the power of this approach first-hand.

    In addition to the state-of-the-art technology in our Cohen Center for Interactive Learning, the event will also include a facilitated discussion with our program staff.
