sadly, we thought we were done with homeschool at the Navy Museum until the fall.
then they offered us homeschoolers a last minute opportunity to see
the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER
– a joint scientific project by explorer and filmmaker James Cameron,
the National Geographic Society
and Rolex to conduct deep-ocean research –
and talk to a couple of scientists to boot,
like geologist, Dr. Christina Symons.
in 2012, Cameron dove to the bottom of the Mariana Trench
– the deepest spot in the known ocean –
in the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER.
only two other people have accomplished this feat
and that was back in 1960
when Lt. Don Walsh and Jacques Picard did it on Trieste.
is this an amazing bonus homeschool, day or what?
