& Liberty Elementary School

Tim on No Regrets has set up links with these 2 schools so they can follow the Blue Planet Odyssey around the world.

‘I just conducted a Skype session with one of the teachers in Pennsylvania from a balcony above the marina. The kids spoke of their project testing local creek waters and barraged me with a ton of questions about the expedition and our boat. Wonderfully uplifting! Know that the Blue Planet Odyssey has quite a number of excited followers.’

Meredith from Coconut Woman has set up links with these two schools in Texas and Massachusetts.

‘I have given both schools a 36″ blowup globe of the Earth,’ says Meredith. ‘This massive globe can help them to glean how big the world is while they trace our voyage on it in magic marker as we sail.
