Getting Your Sea Legs

The MV Explorer is already a floating campus, so why not become a floating research university as well? Semester at Sea invited a top-notch team of researchers from around the world and across the Ivy League to join the opening stretch of the Spring 2012 voyage. The 5 researchers—an international crew from Taiwan, Brazil, France and the USA—are the first group to explore how people react to their initial days on the open ocean. SAS alumni surely remember adjusting their pace and posture as the ship swayed on the waves. Now, through the help of student participation and a clever repurposing of Nintendo Wii boards, we’re measuring the sea legs process and better understanding how we adapt to life at sea.
