Dear Colleagues,

For 40 years, Shoals Marine Laboratory has specialized in  
undergraduate education in marine science and sustainability. Over  
the last two years we have expanded SML's Curriculum to better serve  
students from all over the country. This summer, we will offer more  
than two dozen college-credit courses at our facility on Appledore  
Island, Maine. We still have some places in all of the courses listed  
below. We feature small class sizes and an experiential learning  
environment where everyone learns by first-hand observation. The  
close-knit community we create each summer on Appledore Island gives  
SML the feeling of a residential college, where even a casual  
conversation with a faculty member or teaching assistant can turn  
into a life-changing moment. Being on an offshore island also means  
that every class includes adventure and learning opportunities far  
beyond any normal classroom. Please take a minute to review some of  
our exciting offerings - and join us on Appledore this summer!
