Summer Session Students Lobstering

Students enrolled in Summer Session’s Maine Coastal Expedition spent their day in some of the state’s most beautiful coastal waters engaged in hands-on experiential learning. Hyde faculty member Will Beckham was there and captured Lukas Fisher from Belmont, MA, Grant Heckler from MA, and Max Caplan from Montclaire, NJ. The group is learning about the rich history of Maine’s coast—from the mouth of the Kennebec River to Lubec—and will be engaged in activities that shed light on the question: What gives the coast of Maine its essence?

Beckham says of yesterday’s adventure: “Lobstering is about the Maine culture and economy, and we’re learning first-hand about the adventure, excitement, and challenge of this long-standing industry.”
