Arctic Research Cruise With OSU Scientists

From September 2nd until September 29th, I was lucky enough to be out on a boat in the Arctic Ocean! I was part of a Teacher At Sea program, helping oceanographers from Oregon State University to collect water samples and sediment samples from the ocean bottom. It was an incredible experience and amazing that this is what people do for their job!


Check out the blog that we made!

We saw polar bears, walruses, and seals!

The ship's name is the Sikuliaq which is Inupiaq for 'young sea ice'
