Welcome to the Adventure with Ms. Debbie
Buenos Dias everyone! Greetings from Chile!
My name is Debbie Harner and I am the Lead Discovery Educator at the Living Arts and Science Center in Lexington, Kentucky. Because of a partnership with the University of Kentucky Entomology Dept. and a grant from the National Science Foundation, I have been chosen to go on a trip to Antarctica! I will be the education outreach coordinator for the project. We will be spending 6 weeks visiting Palmer Research Station and the islands surrounding the continent to study the Antarctic midge….the largest terrestrial animal in Antarctica! I will be traveling on a research vessel called the Lawrence M. Gould and have lots of amazing experiences to tell you about in the next few weeks. For now, I would like to share my journey in getting to the boat!
