Northeastern hosted some 250 area high school students last week for the Boston High School Marine Science Symposium. The experience, said the symposium coordinator, stays with the young participants “long after the event is over.”
Northeastern faculty and administrators visited Cuba last week, with members of Congress, to expand upon the university’s academic and research partnerships there, which are paving the way for myriad research opportunities in areas such as coastal sustainability, tropical diseases, and the social sciences. This story is the fourth in our five-part series covering the visit.
A crack in the Antarctic ice shelf known as Larsen C has grown by 17 miles since the beginning of December, according to news reports.
