I am in Hanover, New Hampshire attending a week long orientation workshop. I am having the opportunity to meet new and previous TEA parcticipants and researchers. Former TEA teachers are discussing their experiences.
Today we have had an opportunity to learn about our responsibilities to the TEA program. We heard an interesting presentation from Jill Ferris, the VECO representative regarding clothing and equipment for use in the Arctic. This afternoon we had the chance to see the clothing that we will wear on the trip. This was awesome! John Wrenn, an Antarctic researcher shared his project in the field. We had several panel discussions about expectations and culture. All of the presentations have been so informative. It has been interesting to hear so about so many people's experiences.
