Name: Jo Dodds
Description: REVEL 2005 teacher, O'Leary Junior High School, Twin Falls, Idaho
Jo Dodds is an earth science teacher. She loves teaching about our dynamic Earth, especially volcanism, seismology, plate tectonics, and life in extreme environments.
Participating in this year’s REVEL project will allow her to work with scientists on the cutting edge of discovery of hydrothermal vents which will transfer to her classroom and community. Students in Mrs. Dodds’ classes will be learning by design as they build underwater ROVs as an outreach project when she returns from her research expedition on the Juan de Fuca plate.
Some of her other interests includes birding, cross country skiing, and traveling, especially to areas of active volcanoes and glaciers.
