A huge thanks to caver Rachel McArthur for working with us to set up this great program at her daughter Brooklyn’s school. Students in grades K-5 learned geology, cave rescue, safe caving, conservation, and more.

CaveSim is about learning and having fun at the same time. Left, students learn speleology (the study of how caves form) and, right, some basic measurement skills with the squeezebox. Photos by Rachel McArthur.
