Vital Signs


Vital Signs is an educational citizen science project by the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI). A mix of students, educators, professional scientists, and citizen scientists from across Maine (now spilling into southern New England and New York) are working together to collect, analyze, and share critical environmental information about freshwater, coastal, and upland habitats, and to create authentic learning environments for our next generation of scientists and active, aware citizens. The website provides a platform for sharing and discussing data as well as a learning environment for Maine middle school students.
