Bar Harbor, Maine


Location


The Bar Harbor project site is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Students live and work in close proximity to Acadia National Park and numerous research, historical, environmental, and arts organizations.

Students stay in residence halls and dorms on the College of the Atlantic (COA) campus. In addition to traditional dorm living amenities, students have access to in-dorm kitchens, optional meal plans, and campus security.

While similarities to college living are noticeable, the resemblance quickly disappears. Nestled on the east side of Mt. Desert Island, the rocky coast, mountainous terrain, and ocean vistas of the area have long been the destination of researchers, explorers, scientists, artists, and curious visitors. In addition to the academic and scholarly experiences that await WPI students, the summer in Bar Harbor offers the lure of hiking, biking, rock climbing, swimming, sailing, nature walking, kayaking, whale watching, and more.


Projects


Bar Harbor Projects have a strong focus on the relationship between the humanities, technology, the arts, and the environment. Projects involve research and creative activities intended to offer insight into the preservation, improvement, appreciation, and sustainability of the natural environment.


Project Examples


Environmental awareness - Creating an interactive website that documents in-depth visual, auditory, and physical information for visitors to Acadia National Park
Technology and environment - Gathering and analyzing acoustical data to aid in the creation of an environmental orchestra on Mount Desert Island
