Destination: Antarctica! (updated)

If you've made it to this blog, I'm hoping that you're interested in my upcoming trip to Antarctica. I'm a graduate student in oceanography at Columbia University, and I work with middle school students once a week. While I'm at sea, I work with my students via this blog.

Please feel free to look over the posts from my last research cruise in the Philippines. The upcoming cruise is a little different, but I'll be posting about similar topics. I'll also be doing my own science fair project for my students to follow as they work on their projects.

I'm hoping to expand this blog to include more schools this time. If you're a teacher and would like to use this blog in your classroom at any grade level, please email me and let me know what types of posts would be helpful for you. Any registered Google/Open ID user can comment now!

More information about the cruise, which is part of the LARISSA project, can be found here. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
