  • Students in Professor Sam Teel’s Marine Transportation Ship Structure class were recently invited to visit the Bath Iron Works shipyard in Bath, Maine.

    They were hosted by a number of #MaineMaritime alumnus and Academy friends, and BIW set out a hearty – and much appreciated! - lunch. Students also experienced a very interesting tour of the yard, including under ships currently being built, and learned about the history of BIW, the business of shipbuilding, the importance of the shipyard to the State of Maine and to the Nation, and information about internships and career opportunities.

    As Professor Teel noted, it was “a perfect day in Maine.”

  • Happy Friday, Mariners! It was another busy week at MMA and today's #FridayFive features these highlights from across campus:

    1. #MaineMaritime’s campus Facilities Director Jeff Aceto attended this week’s Student Government Association (SGA) meeting to discuss current project and answer questions pertaining to MMA’s recycling policies, heating systems, residence halls, and future plans.

    2. On Wednesday, Captain William Sabatini gave a presentation about the US Brig Niagara and the Schooner Lettie G. Howard. The Lettie is host to a remarkable co-op opportunity this summer; she will stop in Castine on her way north and take up to twelve students aboard as trainees for the rest of her voyage to Erie, Pennsylvania.

    3. Also on Wednesday, Maine Maritime Academy - UMaine NROTC held their annual awards ceremony to honor outstanding midshipmen. On Thursday, Maine Maritime Academy Athletics and the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee hosted the 2019 Maine Maritime Academy Athletic Awards. Congratulations to all!

    4. MMA’s Sea Scouts chapter was approved as an official student organization by SGA’s board. Sea Scouts, a subdivision of Boy Scout of America, focuses on acquiring and advancing skills related to the maritime industry. The goals of this chapter, known as Ship 1941, are to foster teamwork, leadership skills, and mentorships between current MMA students and troops in the area.

    5. In Professor Ciampa’s Technical Physics class, students examined equipment to learn how certain devices are able to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. In Machine Shop, Mariners completed a plumb-bob making project. A plumb bob, or plummet, is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, suspended from a string and used as a vertical reference line, or plumb line. Next, students will begin work on key fobs.
