2023 Projects

In B term 2023, Professor Fred Looft and Professor Susan Jarvis advised five student teams conducting projects with: the Nantucket Coastal Conservancy & Nantucket Civic League; the Nantucket Energy Office; the Nantucket Health and Human Services; the Maria Mitchell Association; and the Linda Loring Nature Foundation.  A recording of the final presentations is available here courtesy of NCTV8.
