Our Tuesday evening Rock Talk series is a long-standing and well-loved tradition at SML. Historically, faculty members and guest speakers would gather students out on the rocky shoreline of Appledore Island (giving the Rock Talk series its name), and present anything from a natural history seminar to a demonstration dissection. Today, the tradition continues with a post-dinner presentation followed by lively discussion in Kiggins Commons. Each rock talk highlights the work of visiting scholars, alumni, faculty, or staff, and presents a new and exciting perspective on science. The entire island community comes together for these events.
