Fessenden Team Updates
Day 1 @ FB
We arrived around 10am to bright sun. After dorm orientation and meeting their groups, we were off to lunch - salad, chili & chicken fajitas. A short break, lessons - the ABCs of Ecology, some down time and dinner, which was a big hit, pasta, red sauce, bread, salad, and a cookie for dessert. After dinner students spent some time reflecting about the day's lessons in their journals. Then it was off to their night lesson - Marine Lab and Nature at Night. After lessons, we had graham crackers and it was off to get ready for bed and a quick dorm meeting with the AMS staff. All in all, it was a productive day.
