Perkins School visit to WHOI

Getting in Touch with Science

A student from Perkins School for the Blind examines a piece of whale baleen with the help of Karen Damelio, an assistant at WHOI's Ocean Exhibit Center. Several Perkins students visited WHOI last April as part of OceanInsight, a program developed by physical oceanographer Amy Bower and teachers at Perkins. Bower, who is legally blind, works with the students to convey the excitement of oceanography and the strategies that allow her to do science. In 2010 she was named an "Unsung Heroine of Massachusetts" by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
