From Julia DeMarines, Education Officer on Expedition 350:
Happy Easter from the JOIDES Resolution! One of our co-chief scientists, Cathy Busby, had little treats for us today, Peeps and chocolate eggs! We had some spectacular core come up with excellent blue/green colors.
We were at the USA Science and Engineering Festival< April 25-27th, sharing the story of ocean drilling to families and students at the Washington, DC convention center! Scientists, educators and staff spoke with hundreds of excited young people about the nature of science and finding evidence.
