On January 21st, Ellison 4th and 5th grade students participated in a webinar scheduled by Time for Kids with researcher Jean Pennycook. She is the researcher we sent our postcards to last fall. Over 2,000 people viewed the webinar live that day. The students who were not in attendance at both Ellison and Braun Station have seen portions of the recorded interview during their class time.
We learned quite a bit about what it is like to visit Antarctica as a researcher and how Jean studies the Adélie penguins. What amazing animals to be able to live in such an environment.
