When you send a styrofoam cup down to a great depth under the sea, the styrofoam is compressed and the cup shrinks. You can draw on them with waterproof marker, and the drawings become tiny pieces of artwork. This summer, participants in a program at a library in Greensboro had a chance to Skype with Liz Baird. They learned about her participation in several research missions and saw some of the cups she had “shrunk” while at sea. After the program the students wrote on their on cups and mailed them to Liz. They were sent down on a CTD yesterday and you can see how much they have shrunk!
