  • Students in the Engineering Chemistry course at #MaineMaritime are mid-way through a three-part lab sequence that investigates the acidity and pH of coffee. The students start by titrating tap water for its acidity and then roast the coffee beans. Lastly, they brew coffee with the same tap water they investigated earlier. They also measure the pH every five minutes for an hour and half and taste test the brew every 15 minutes! Throughout this lab the students investigate the change in acidity and the differences in acidity between the light and dark roasts.

    The students are fortunate to have had the help of David Dillon of Bucklyn Coffee in Blue Hill who assisted with the roasting process!

    5. It’s been a big season for MMA basketball and the men’s team clinched the fifth seed in the upcoming North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Tournament. The team will travel to Waterville on Saturday to face the No. 4 seed, Thomas College at 1pm. This is the first time since the 2010-2011 season that the Mariners are heading to the NAC Tournament. Good luck, gentlemen!

    1. In David Walker’s E-Lab this week, engineering students worked on building analog multimeters. The meters will be tested in the next few weeks for an upcoming project and will be used for measuring voltage, current, and resistance. It is a great task for practicing soldering techniques and learning about electrical circuits.

  • This month we will be highlighting #MaineMaritime’s faculty and staff through a series of #MarinerMonday features. With each feature, you will get the chance to meet one of the people that helps make MMA a great place to learn and grow.

    We’re kicking off the series with Ann Dyer, the Public Services Librarian at Nutting Memorial Library. Ann arrived in Castine in 2017 and has been an integral part of our campus community since, assisting students with research, hosting events, and helping patrons find books. Ann’s interactions with library-goers extend far beyond the front desk, as she is the voice of the library’s social media accounts and a point of contact for the Castine community.
