Amy Bower, of the WHOI Physical Oceanography department, gives a tour of the R/V Oceanus to a group of students from the Perkins School for the Blind. Bower, who is legally blind, collaborates with the Watertown, Ma., school on project OceanInsight. The goals of the project are to communicate the importance of understanding how the earth works, instill the excitement of oceanographic research, and introduce Perkins students to careers in the geosciences that they might not otherwise consider as accessible to them.
