Amy Palmer - Boothbay Sea & Science Center Picture

From a recent article in the Wiscasset Newspaper about the Boothbay Sea & Science Center (BSSC): 

Amy Palmer is back to BSSC for her third summer of teaching. Amy started her career as a naturalist at environmental education centers from Ohio to California to Alaska. She studied sea turtles in Hawaii and experienced first-hand the “great Pacific garbage patch.” Amy studied marine science at Moss Landing Marine Lab in California, focusing on lingcod migration using remote sensing technology. She then became a middle school science teacher on an island in Maine! “My most recent adventures include leading a middle school Lego Robotics team, teaching 2nd graders how to code, and creating a mini village powered by renewable energy with 4th graders using a 3D printer and lots of ingenuity”. Amy is currently the K-8 STEAM teacher at the Saint George School in Tenants Harbor. This summer, every Wednesday beginning July 1 to Aug. 19, Amy will be “Tracking Trash; The Secret Lives of Trash.”
