to the Virtual Science Fair! This is where
we invite all Extreme 2004 participating classrooms to submit their
deep-sea work (group or individual projects) in one of three categories:
Vent Science, Vent Art, and Vent
Poetry — with separate competitions for middle school
and high school students.
Vent Science and Vent Art
entries will be judged by Chief Scientist Dr. Cary and members of
the Extreme 2004 science team when they return from sea. Prizes
will be awarded for the best projects in each category. You'll hear
more about the Vent Poetry competition
from Karen Romano Young, one of our shipboard education coordinators, once the expedition
gets under way, so please be sure to read her Daily
your class develop a great science project as a result of Extreme
2004? Did you conduct an experiment, research a neat topic, and
report your results in a scientific poster? Did your class paint
a mural of deep-sea life, host a special deep-sea event at your
school, develop an advertisement or musical composition for Extreme
2004, or express thoughts about the deep sea and discovery in poetry?
E-mail us digital files of your work or package them up and mail
them to the address below. Each entry must include the information
listed below. The deadline for entries is Monday, December
20, 2004. Good luck!
