    Whales don’t fit into classrooms and birds don’t fly in classrooms. In Islands Through Time, rising high school juniors and seniors gain college credit while learning the ecology, culture, and history of Downeast Maine, drawing and painting, and learning from an interdisciplinary perspective. Stay at the college's island field stations. Visit natural marine habitats and the rocky intertidal coastline. Gain firsthand experience in data collection and research.
