Welcome to Adventure Earth Science! This page is page is dedicated to the study of Earth Science through Adventure. My name is Tim Martin, I teach Earth Science at Greensboro Day School and live Earth Science through rock climbing, backpacking, and traveling as well as observing the natural world! If you are a Teacher, Student, Parent, or Curious Explorer, take some time to browse this site either through the links below or on the bar on the left. Virtual Field Trips will be found under the Adventure link, Course materials may be found under the Homework, Meteorology, Astronomy and Geology links.

In August, 2010 I joined a group of teachers from GDS at NASA's Ellington Field near Johnson Space Center in Houston TX to fly an experiment in Zero G aboard the "Weightless Wonder" NASA's microgravity aircraft. As the airplane climbs and dives out over the Gulf of Mexico, the science teams and crew experience intervals of zero g followed by periods of two times the force of gravity.

In the winter of 2009 I was given the great privilege to join a Geologic climate research expedition to northern Siberia through the Polar TREC program. I traveled to Lake El'gygytgyn in NE Chukotka, Russia. I worked with an international team of scientists led by Dr. Julie Brigham-Grette from the University of Massachusetts. After I attended orientation in Alaska in February, I lived and worked in the Siberian Arctic for five weeks in March and April. Please visit the expedition web site for journals, photos, video and lesson plans.
