Visitors to Bull Pass
Today we hosted members of Congress and representatives of the National Science Foundation at our base camp. These visitors are in Antarctica for a week to see what type of science is being done and to get a first hand look at the infrastructure of the US facilities. Yesterday they visited the South Pole Station and today were visiting several field camps in the McMurdo Dry Valleys including ours.
Bruce gave the visitors a thorough overview of the geology of the region and of the projects we're doing while we're here. The visitors also were able to see our living conditions and to talk to each of us about our parcticular areas of expertise.
I was especially happy to discuss the TEA program and how it dovetails into the science and math program we have at Yarmouth High School.
