I left San Diego aboard the research vessel Ka’imimoana on March 1st. This was the first time the KA had ever had a Teacher at Sea on board, so they really didn’t know what to expect. During the next 23 days, I was just another scientist or crew member – albeit with her own videographer! My mission was to be an ambassador for education and to bring the work that NOAA does in the Pacific to the world.
I plan to elaborate on the experience and explain to teachers how they, too, can have this experience of a lifetime.
