This module will span the second two weeks of the expedition and will focus primarily on the history of ocean exploration and ocean going vessels. The timing of this module was chosen to provide an understanding of those mariners and rowers who have gone before the crew and the JRH. The lessons and daily updates will focus on situating the expedition in the grand history of ocean exploration.

If you or your class have any questions or comments for the crew please submit them below. We would also like to encourage submitting pictures or videos of the classes doing the labs. Those can be submitted to education@oarnorthwest.com. (Please note these images/videos may be posted on this site or other sites in conjunction with OAR Northwest)
