Mr. Cady's sixth grade science classes attended the Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland on Tuesday and Wednesday (Feb. 14-15) to investigate the question: "Why are lobsters so abundant in the Gulf of Maine?" The students worked in small groups at lab stations to study the diet, anatomy, habitat, and influence of fishing on lobsters. It was an awesome science experience for students, taught by scientists, and provided at no cost by corporate sponsors in the state of Maine.

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is a non-profit marine science center, whose work strengthens five essential elements that define an enduring relationship with the ocean: Healthy Ecosystem, Sustainable Industries, Vibrant Communities, Abundant Opportunities, and Inspired Children.
