This was a challenging expedition. The weight of information was staggering at times. As in previous expeditions, the students took their role as "journalist-explorers" seriously, and led the way in identifying what key concepts the Expedition 3 website should impart to its readers.
There's more to each expedition than the science. Over pizza, movies, and bowling, the members get to know each other and share their thoughts. (For snapshots, go to The Base Camp Earth Scrapbook.) These moments add appeal to each expedition's human story.
Base Camp Earth is unique in the way it creates topical web resources for science teachers and students: we let students pioneer the way. The result are sites that are story-driven, focused and above all, accessible.
