Division of Atmospheric Sciences are proud to introduce
the two outstanding teachers that participated in our EPIC
Teacher At Sea Adventure!
Office of Global Programs (OGP) and the National Science Foundation
(NSF) Division of Atmospheric Sciences supported the placement
of two teachers on board the Research Vessel Ronald H. Brown as
part of the Eastern Pacific Investigation of Climate
teachers participated in the science being conducted on the ship,
wrote weekly lesson plans, maintained
a daily log, took photographs,
interviewed scientists, participated
in videos, and engaged in a dialogue on this special EPIC
Teacher At Sea web site.
well as the shipboard experience, Jane visited our associated
aircraft facility in Huatulco, Mexico and flew one mission on
board the NSF C-130, and Jennifer spent time conducting
more research on the Galapagos Islands.
returning to San Diego and Alexandria, Jennifer and Jane were
both given a warm welcome home from their schools, Guajome Park
Academy and Lyles-Crouch Traditional Academy. Jennifer and Jane
also were invited to participate in a Welcome Home Reception on
Capitol Hill that was sponsored by their local Congressman (Representative
Randy "Duke" Cunningham and Representative James P.
