NARRAGANSETTâ€“URIâ€™s Bay Campus is the launching point for many scientific activities. The 30-year-old research vessel Endeavor has traveled over one million nautical miles, transporting scientists and complex research tools to places such as the Black Sea to examine ancient shipwrecks. The GSO offers public school teachers the chance to partake in such important scientific work. Erica Killian is one of them.
â€śThis is my first experience,â€ť said Killian, a mathematics teacher at Exeter-West Greenwich High School. â€śThe scientists took me in and made me a part of the process. They are a really interesting group of people.â€ť
