Day 7 Journal, July 18, 2006

18 07 2007

Hi Campers!  I hope you enjoyed Krista Trono’s presentation this morning.  She’s really a terrific lady and she gets to do such fun “stuff” in her job with the Monitor Foundation and NOAA.  Let’s take a little time to reflect on what you learned from her, please. 

Tell about at least two new facts that you learned from Krista.  This should be things that you did not know before or had little knowledge and understanding about before Krista came to talk to you today.  Give details.  Also, explain why or why not you would want Krista or someone with her skills as part of your recovery team.  Would you want that person on the actually voyage, or would you want to consult with that individual before you set sail?

 Points for everyone to remember when posting to the CCR Blog:

  • Be sure to write your answers in complete sentences.
  • Do not use all capital letters–that means you’re yelling at us!
  • Check spelling and mechanics.
  • DO NOT post mulitple comments that are nonsense.  EX. cartoons, random comments that have nothing to do with camp.  Remember-this is not a chat room or MySpace, it is a journaling forum where you share your reacitions and thoughts about the camp and the project.

    well today i learned that there are actually more than 1 hawaiian islands (you’d think i would know that by now) another thing i did not know that Ms. Krista Trono told us about today was that titanic was discovered by —–Ballard *i forgot his name ~bad memory~*. someone working in the field with Ms. Trono might be helpful in getting the treasure from sure but her whole crew, we might have to have a talk with before we go on our voyage. i think that i covered it all if not i am so sorry ~sad face ~ 🙁

    I knew about NOAA, but I never knew what it stood for or what it was about. I learned that it stood for:

    Ocean &

    I also never knew that so many ship sink off the coast of Noth Carolina.
    They sink because of the currents and the weather conditions they create.

    I would want to consult Krista before the voyage. She has great knowledge of the currents, weather conditions, and geography out there and could be great help with planning everything.

    Hi today was okay
    I found out that the monitor’s turret fell off and the burned the merrimack. I would want krista skills because I’m actually going to try to intern their 😉 I would consult with that person with those skills instead of voyaging.

    I enjoyed Krista’s presentation today. I learned there are lots of things to do if you work for NOAA; Like the National Weather Service and a lot of other stuff. And I learned a lot about the monitor that I didn’t know. Krista would be a lot of help to our recovery team. Because she knows a lot about the ocean and coral reefs. She would be great to help us recover the treasure. She would travel to the Dominican Republic with us and map out the coral reef for us.

    Two facts I learned today were that NOAA has an internship, which actually sound really cool, and I learned that there are different divisions of NOAA. Honestly, I didn’t know that NOAA had many divisions, I just thought it was one whole big company. I would want someone like her one the recovery team, because, well, she works for management so having her on the team would keep me in the know of how to go about things. I would want her for the before and especially after, since she works in education and outreach and teaching the children in different ways.

    I learned that you can be an intern as young as 14 there. That they have 14 sites to 🙂 ! She was nice and very informational. There are many people that are different working with her. I would want her because she is ver infomational (again) and knows alot about diving rules. I would want to consult them first to know they really know what theyr’e doing.

    1.miss krista was really cool.two things i learn today was that you cant just go out and get a ship from under water with learnen about the boat or things around it and that it is really cool to dive under water to see all the cool stuff. i never new some much stuff,like u could travel around the world and that u could start at 14yrs old,also u have to have a support so u can fund for the trip t be able to dive in there so u can check around the area.
    2.i would like to have krista over for the trip cause she seems fun and looks like she loves her job and thats i would wont on the ship. so we could have fun and work

    :0 Having Krista come talk to us was pretty exciting. She explained to us that there is a National Marine Santuary Program and it is a system of 14 marine protected areas. She also explained to us that her crew went down into the sea and found the USS Monitor in 1975. Her job is somewhat interesting because of the technology being used, but I dont like the fact that you have to be exposed to much sun. 😉 I think we might need her on our trip. I dont know why right now but after we review the other jobs we will see.

    I was not here yesterday, but from the flyer I got I have learned a few more things I didn’t know about. The Monitor was our nation’s first nationals marine sanctuary and was designated on January 30, 1975. Also, the Monitor has been called the most famous ship in American history. I think it would be a good idea to bring her with my crew to our voyage. She seems like she knows a lot and would help during our voyage of our great treasure.
