On May 29, we are pleased to be making our first visit to Plympton with EarthView (though team member Dr. James goes to Plympton often to visit his favorite farm. A number of geographically interesting events took place on this day in history:

1990 Boris Yeltsin is elected president of the Russian republic
1989 Student protesters in China construct a replica of Statue of Liberty
1953 Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norkay are 1st to reach summit of Everest
(Thanks to!)

During most of our EarthView visits, we describe how Mount Everest was formed. We'll make a special point of it in this visit.

As always, we invite Dennett students and teachers to post questions and comments following our visit!
