On the 3rd and 4th of May Pacifica introduced 349 students in the towns of Ouray, Montrose, and Cortez, CO, to our research in Antarctica and preliminary results - as well as how to do science in Antarctica. She was joined by her sister, Aleah Sommers, a doctoral candidate in Civil Engineering at CU Boulder, who will defend her dissertation at the end of the month. The visit to the schools was organized by The Pinhead Institute, a nonprofit based in Telluride, CO, that connects local students to scientists.
