biboon 2007-2008 was our first experience collecting a core. It was especially cold and students prepared themselves. LacCore Scientists visited camp assisting students in understanding the process and the core. Students practiced their "coring" with bowls of jello and whipped cream as well as cupcakes layered with various ingredientssymbolizing the layers we might find in the earth. Inkle looms were used to create woven bands. Jourmals were kept recording the activities from the weekend.
