MBC students during the 2021 summer session zoomed in on Dr. Isabel Rivera-Collazo for film week. The film explores how her experiences growing up in extreme weather conditions in Puerto Rico inspired a professional career marine science, focusing on climate change impacts.

Student filmmakers interviewed Isabel on the importance of small intertidal organisms, and how they can illustrate global climate change.
