Famous Geologist and Cartographer Inspires Unique Project at IRES

December 3, 2021

Marie Tharp was a geologist and cartographer whose work greatly improved our understanding of the oceans. Her work also inspired a recent #YSBOLD project in Mrs. Crumbling’s fifth-grade classroom at Indian Rock Elementary School! The students used colorful shaving cream to paint maps of the ocean floor and simulate its topography.
