4th Grade is participating in the Mount Everest Educational Expedition in cooperation with Montana State University.  Students will follow world famous climber Conrad Anker of Bozeman, Professor Dr. Dave Lageson, MSU student Travis Corthouts, and the rest of the Everest Education Expedition Team.  Students will learn about the scientific mission, as well as the tools and equipment the team will be using.  The class will simulate some of the activities the hikers experience.  We are able to monitor the climb via the following website.  http://www.montana.edu/everest/index.htm
Students can email questions to the climbers and MSU will forward them to the team at Everest Base Camp, and based on the team's availability, they will be answered and posted on the Everest Education Expedition Web site.  Send questions to outreach@montana.edu
