Dear Colleagues,

This summer, Dr. Frank Fish will offer a new course Functional
Morphology of Marine Organisms at Shoals Marine Laboratory (http:// This promises to be
an exciting course, with lots of hands-on work and an independent
research project. We still have two to three spaces available.

I would appreciate it if you could tell your students about this
opportunity and about SML in general. For 40 years, SML has
specialized in undergraduate education in marine science. 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 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 encourage your students to join
us on Appledore this summer!

Thank you very much for your help.
