Glad you loved it, Jeff. Hope to see you back out there some time soon. While we don't have a formal "Teacher's Week" yet, we have taken numerous teachers out with us in past years, and I believe they get a LOT out of the trip. We do also have some field-based curriculum plans for teachers, developed by one of our repeat teacher participants. They are as yet untested, but we'd love for a teacher to come out with us, take the lesson plans back home with them, and try them out with their students!

Thanks Denny. It's always fun and interesting to hear what makes the biggest impressions on people. We'll be sure to get you your own personalized field tools and tie them to your waist. While what we offer IS mostly a field experience, we do also have opportunities for others who might want to become volunteers in the Paleontology Lab at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University to learn how to prepare the fossils. We also have research opportunities for students and others, and we certainly could use some interns to help us in lots of different areas if anyone is looking for experience to beef-up their resumes!
