Block Island Science Adventures



Forty Crusaders in grades 9-12 traveled to Block Island over five weeks in July and August to study biodiversity with the Block Island Maritime Institute’s Dolphin Program. They spent a whole week on the island, studying local ecosystems, gathering data, and working together to answer the question, “In what ways can people help to sustain ecosystem function and biodiversity on Block Island?”

Many thanks to Valerie Preler, program director of the Block Island Maritime Institute, for hosting our students this summer. Thanks also to our program intern Genesis Castaneda, a College Crusade alum who just earned her B.S. in Biological Science from the University of Rhode Island!
