Description: The mission of the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership is to integrate science education, applied research, and leadership development through year-round educational programs and a seasonal, environmentally sustainable island community. Engaging with our off-grid systems, unplugging from the distractions of an online world, and conducting field work in a natural setting inspires youth to tackle the most pressing issues of our day, because they gain the leadership skills to turn their knowledge into action. Both on and off Hurricane Island, we are educating tomorrow's leaders in the STEM fields, and building a cohesive scientific community based on experiential education and environmental awareness. Hurricane Island is located about 12 miles off the coast of Rockland, Maine. To learn more about us, please visit www.hurricaneisland.net. There's no place like Hurricane!
June 16 2022 Update: With heavy hearts, Phin and I have concluded that we are overwhelmed by the continuing impediments that confront a successful effort and are resigned to join the numerous other efforts that have thrown their hands up. For this reason, the 2022 Maine Boatbuilders Show is officially cancelled.
