2005 Expeditions

Expeditions Complete:

Be sure to keep reading the Teacher's Journals and posting questions in the "Ask the Teacher and Researcher" sections of the Virtual Base Camp. Teachers are still posting journal entries and photos for completed expeditions as well as responding to questions that their students are posting on the site.

Teacher journals and photo albums from the field are featured on the TREC Virtual Base Camp -- an extension of the TREC Website, developed as a platform for information sharing and interaction among teachers, students, researchers, and community members interesting in arctic science.
