The goal of Boston Intertidal Exploration was to immerse Boston-area neurodivergent youth in coastal ecosystems to learn about the ecology of rocky and intertidal systems.
Boston Intertidal Exploration sought to incite curiosity in Boston-area youth regarding the functions and phenomena of urban oceans. Through a two-day workshop hosted at the MIT Media Lab and Pleasure Bay field site, explorers developed experimental questions to facilitate a deeper understanding of the unique qualities of water bodies in urban contexts.
