NYA is pleased to announce a new and innovative partnership with Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay. Bigelow Laboratory, founded in 1974, is a private, non-profit oceanographic research institution focused on microbial oceanography. For 26 years, Bigelow Laboratory has offered a one-week course to public school students from around the state known as the Bigelow Laboratory Orders of Magnitude Program (or “BLOOM”). This five-day program takes students out on the water for a full day of oceanographic field work followed by several days of serious scientific research culminating in a formal presentation. Through this new partnership, NYA will now offer a similar program to its students beginning this fall.

NYA chair of visual and performing arts, Ian Ramsey, created an environmental writing class this spring based around his students’ interests and his own expertise. The class combines writing, environmentalism and adventure with a focus on writing technique, storytelling and environmental awareness. The course is designed for students who are both proficient and interested in the combination of environmentalism and writing. The culmination of the course is a trip to Alaska for a week from June 22 – July 1. Students will kayak through Alaska’s Glacier Bay and meet with environmental authors they have studied during the class, including Kim Heacox and Hank Lentfer.
