Dear Kevin McMahon,
My name is Sandra from St. Mark Catholic School.
What's the most important part of your trip that will guarantee success?
Please write when you can,

Kevin McMahon

Hi Sandra, thank you for your question. One important thing that will guarantee a successful expedition is to be a team player. There is a lot of work to be done and it can't happen unless we all do our part and help out with whatever job needs to be done. For example this morning, Brandon and Hannah took measurements of the albedo (a measure of how much light is being reflected off the surface of the Earth), I was getting a snow sample that showed many different layers. Tomorrow, we will switch jobs so we all get a chance to do each job. I hope this answers your question.
Thanks for following our expedition. Mr. McMahon
