Tabor Academy welcomes Captain Jay Amster of SEA Semester’s sail training vessel, SSV Robert C. Seamans, and Kim Reed, SEA's Science Program Coordinator, as our first Science@Work lecturers of the year. Captain Amster and Reed will share news of their recent collaborative project with NASA. A team from SEA and NASA studied a newly-formed volcanic island in the South Pacific as a way to better understand our neighboring planet, Mars. Come learn about their findings as they searched for clues on the young island, Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai, about how water may have shaped Mars.
This fascinating lecture will take place at Tabor Academy in the Lyndon South Auditorium in the Stroud Academic Center, 242 Front Street, Marion, MA, on September 23rd at 6:30 PM. The event is free and open to the public.
