Meet the Blogger

Meet our summer intern and blogger, Lauren Hoyerman, who will be a senior this fall at Falmouth Academy.  Lauren shares with us a passion for Woods Hole, a love that is rooted in her appreciation of the physical beauty of the area, her interest in photography and the knowledge she has gained living in one of the most cutting-edge science communities in the US. “It’s impossible to grow up near Woods Hole and not become interested in science,” said Hoyerman who has worked as an intern at almost all of Woods Hole’s science centers including the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute […]

It’s quite a sight to see – a mast floating past steel girders, sunburnt boaters below waving up to the crowd, traffic halted with people on bikes, scooters, vintage cars […]
