Teachers are raving about their Creep into the Deep and Bold in the Cold experiences.  And we expect the same amazing interaction from the new Bold in the Cold. Here are just a few comments we've received:

    “…an unprecedented opportunity to learn about research at sea…"

   "...Offered our landlocked students a unique opportunity to learn more about the oceans from deep sea explorers…"

   "...I love that it was interactive and students were able to [connect] with the scientists"

"...The entire Bold in the Cold experience was amazing; so many teachable moments outside of my regular curriculum!"
