Dreams come true!! From the first time I heard about the Joides Resolution, I knew I wanted to sail on this research and be part of its mission.
I first learned about the School of Rock (SOR) several years ago at the National Science Teachers Conference when I heard about the Joides Resolution (JR) and realized its potential as a STEM teaching tool. In 2007 and 2008, I have attended the SOR in Texas while the JR was going under a major retrofitting to update it. But now for the next two weeks, I will be attending the SOR on the JR.
I hope to share with you some of the amazing things about the JR such as the drilling derrick, scientific equipment, and labs. It is a unique ship. Please follow along with my adventure!
