SEARSPORT — The Penobscot Marine Museum will host speaker Dick Baldwin 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, at 2 Church St. $8/person, $5/Museum member.

Baldwin launched Educational Passages as a project to spread ocean and environmental literacy. Their GPS-equipped MiniBoats follow ocean currents and winds, allowing students of all ages to explore oceanic phenomena while we develop transoceanic classrooms. Dick’s talk will include photos and video from his most recent MiniBoat launch from the University of Maine Marine Science Club and the United Center of Technologies in Bangor off the Cape of Good Hope.
