Metcalf’s Annual Science Immersion Workshop is a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience that gives journalists an opportunity to explore and understand the impacts of global change in coastal ecosystems.  The fellows, selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, learn how to analyze scientific data in and around Narragansett Bay and sharpen their investigative reporting skills at one of the nation’s premier research institutions.
