It is back to work for me at the University of Kansas! Today 26 students and five chaperones from Eaton Academy Charter School in Eastpointe, Michigan visited us at the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets.I gave them a brief presentation about our center and the research we do.
I also showed them a few of our Ice, Ice, Baby activities. Since I am just coming off the ice myself, I had many cold weather experiences to share with them.
The Detroit-area students have devoted the past year to fundraising for KU's Audio-Reader, which provides services for the visually impaired. By selling candy canes over the holidays and holding raffles, the students have raised money for the Audio-Reader program throughout their junior year.
I'm off to Elizabeth City, North Carolina next week for a middle school workshop. There are many beaches nearby so I hope to see them! Just two weeks ago I was looking out the window of the cargo plane and saying a last goodye to Greenland!
