ESW Update 10/09:Â “Grab your pencils, paints, and creative minds! The Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling are looking for your best and brightest original artwork of its ship, the JOIDES Resolution (JR).
Students are encouraged to submit entries for the J-aRt Contest. Create a drawing, painting, or other artwork featuring the JR and its work. Winning classrooms and schools will be visited by JR crew and staff.
A research vessel, the JR takes core samples and measurements from under the ocean floor, giving scientists a glimpse into Earthâ€™s development and also a scientific means of measuring climate and environmental change throughout a significant part of our planetâ€™s history. To learn more about the ship, visit http://joidesresolution.org. Submissions are due November 10. For rules and instructions, visit http://joidesresolution.org/node/446.”
