Follow teacher Heather Pacheco on her blog she’s keeping for Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution while on the R/V Knorr with Senior Scientist Lloyd Keigwin and his team of scientists. She, along with two fellow Massachusetts teachers, represents the K-12 Outreach Keigwin chose to include for the mandatory “Broader Impacts” component of his federally funded grant through NSF (National Science Foundation). Heather encourages you to start your thinking about the possibility of connecting with researchers at institutions in your state (or nearby). Read the blog: http://studying-climate-ocean.blogspot.com
Don’t hesitate to ask questions via email or the blog – and send along any suggestions you have for blog topics!
She will be on the ship and blogging from July 10 – August 1, 2010.
