Dr. Calvin Mires will discuss his 17-year career in maritime archaeology, and some of the programs that he is currently developing to offer educational and training opportunities to citizen scientists of all ages in Massachusetts. Shipwrecks are the largest and most recognizable remains, and while many rest underwater, there are several that are found along the beaches and shorelines in Massachusetts. The field is inherently interdisciplinary and relies on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to investigate all types of cultural resources, from shipwrecks to harbors, wharves, seaside communities, maritime landscapes, and more.
