An Ice-Breaking Experience

Kathleen Couchon
First Paragraph

“Would you like to go to the North Pole?” With an emphatic and affirmative “Yes!,” this middle-school science teacher found herself off on the adventure of a lifetime. In the summer of 2004, I spent six weeks as part of the Arctic Coring Expedition (ACEX) in the Arctic Ocean on IODP Expedition 302. I quickly found myself immersed in a scientific experience that will forever shape the way I look at teaching.
