The NOAA 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
(EPIC http://www.atmos.washington.edu/gcg/EPIC/ and http://www.physics.nmt.edu/raymond/epic2001/epic2001.html).

Both 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.

As 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.

After 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. Moran).

If you would like more information about participating in future Teacher at Sea programs, please contact webmaster@ogp.noaa.gov.

Note for educators: Although Jennifer and Jane's reseearch cruise ended, the EPIC research continues. Please use this web site, Jennifer and Jane's lesson plans, daily logs, the videos, and the photos to educate your students about climate, El Niño, and scientific research in general.

Consider this web site, as well as the TAO web site, a resource for teaching your students.

Many organizations and countries are involved in funding the EPIC Experiment. Primary U. S. funding is provided by The National Science Foundation and The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
