In January 2013, ReMain facilitated the collaboration of non-profits and businesses to welcome the students and faculty of UMass Boston's School for the Environment to downtown for a pilot program semester of "Living Labs Nantucket". These students enlivened the quiet winter streets, dined at the restaurants that stay open year round and enjoyed evenings at the movies all while researching our unique island ecosystems. Students use our Greenhound Building as one of their downtown classrooms and meeting space.

In its third year, the "Living Labs Nantucket" program continued into the winter season from January 2015-April 2015.
