Rain Rain Go Away!

Hello, my name is Alice Binns. I just completed sophomore year at Northeastern University. My position at Save The Harbor/Save The Bay Youth Programs is one of the three Senior Program Assistants. We have just finished up our first week of training. Some of these activities included playing “1 fish, 2 fish, red fish, blue fish”, visiting different cites in the pouring rain (and loving it), and taking group field trips to the restroom in order to study the vortex of the drain (thanks to Bruce). After a bit of research, I have concluded that water flows down the drain both counterclockwise and clockwise (not dependent on the hemisphere). The Coriolis force is simply too weak to affect such small bodies of water. I guess you learn something new every day! So let me tell you, despite the weather, we have managed to make progress, bond with one another, and prepare for the start of our program next week. Cant wait!!
