Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) Lab Tour
We began the day by learning how to navigate the earth by using Polaris as a way to find the latitude and other early equations to find the longitude. We then traveled down the road to WHOI where we went to the Paleotempestology Lab where Stephanie works. All of the instruments and tools that she uses are very cool. We then walked down to the engineering workshop and saw equipment that is going to be in Antartica and the North Pole in a few weeks. After dinner, the groups presented what we learned from reading science and newspaper articles. We ended the day with an overview of the next day and study hall.
