I'm a graduate of the University Polytechnic of Marche (Italy) in marine biology. I have a Master degree in nature conservation and management at the University of Camerino (Italy). Since 2000, I have been a high school science teacher. My school is the Liceo Classico "F. Stabili-E. Trebbiani" in wonderful Ascoli Piceno (Italy). I'm also a geology Ph.D. student at the University of Camerino with a focus on teaching Earth sciences. In 2015, I had the great opportunity to be selected, as a teacher, to participate in the XXX Italian Antarctica Expedition with the aim of disseminating Italian Antarctic research in Italian schools.
In 2016 I had another great chance: I took part in School of Rock 2016 in Cape Town (South Africa). It has been the best training course ever for me.

The question was: when will we reach the basement in the site 1500?

Do you remember the 86 Styrofoam cups we sent on the seafloor (3800 m below sea level) with our sub-sea video camera?

We need to wait even some years to fully understand the major scientific findings in Expedition 367 but what we can say right now without any doubt is that on the point of view of the operations Exp 367 has been one of the most challenging and successful ever done. Let's discover why from the words of our Operation Superintendent Steve Midgley.

So far, in our chit-chats we met sedimentologists, geophysicists, paleomagnetists, paleontologists. Now it is the turn of a structural geologist. He is from France and this post will be bilingual.
Madames and Messieurs, voila Michael Nirrengarten.

Expedition 367 is going to finish. We spent two months on the South China Sea and next expedition 368 will continue to work here with the same scientific objectives of expedition 367.

Among the variety of geologists we have onboard of the JR there are the group of the Paleomagnetists. Let's discover something about one of them Steven Skinner, a scientist always available in inspiring students during the video connections, about the exciting world of Paleomagnetism.
