Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

We have arrived!  From all corners of the map, scientists, teachers, engineers, and crew have spent the past few days traveling to and loading the R/V Endeavor.  Everything must be brought aboard, unpacked, and safely stowed before we cast off at noon on Saturday. 

We spent the day unloading food and dry goods from the delivery, unpacking chemicals and equipment, making a few last-minute hardware store runs, and enjoyed one final meal on dry land for the next 22 days.

In the morning, final preparations will be made, and everything will be triple-checked to ensure no issues once we are underway.  The weather looks very promising, even with a newly active Atlantic storm basin.

We spent some time getting to know the crew and members of the science team as well.  Everyone is very excited to get dialed in to their respective focuses.  There is going to be a lot to cover during this trip, and a lot of great activities we hope you will be able to share with your classes and colleagues.  Remember, if you have any questions for the science or teacher teams, post them up!  We would love to hear from you, and help bring this expedition alive for your students!
