District 47 teacher part of a first in Antarctic
McMURDO STATION, Antarctica – Fourth-grade teacher and Crystal Lake resident Betty Trummel was part of a scientific breakthrough this weekend.
Trummel, 56, took a monthslong sabbatical from teaching at Husmann Elementary School for a research trip with WISSARD scientists in Antarctica. WISSARD stands for Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling.
The team of scientists successfully drilled through 2,600 feet of Antarctic ice to reach a subglacial lake and retrieved water and sediment samples that have been isolated for thousands of years.
