In addition to bringing CaveSim to this school-wide event, Dave was the keynote speaker and spoke from personal experience about caves, science, engineering, and cave rescue.  CaveSim was hugely popular, with families staying beyond the end of the event so that they could try exploring the cave.

Students adjust the squeezebox, which teaches measurement science and shows the students their personal limits (it’s like the limbo, but for caving!)
