in the spring of 2016, for the first time ever, scientists were at sea drilling into the crater from the asteroid impact that caused most dinosaurs and many other species to go extinct. Kevin was able to be part of this expedition as an educator at sea from May 10 to May 13, 2016.
Then the scientists for the Chicxulub K-Pg Impact Crater expedition met in Bremen, Germany during the fall of 2016 to split open the core samples collected from the crater and start studying them in detail. Kevin was able to join them in Bremen from September 21st to October 4th as their educator on land. During both experiences, Kevin created a number of resources to help both kids and adults share in this science experience.
