He discovered the RMS Titanic, methane-fueled mud volcanoes in the Gulf of Mexico, completely preserved shipwrecks in the Black Sea and life where most believed wasn’t possible. And now, famed oceanographer and explorer Dr. Robert Ballard is taking the very explorations and discoveries that made him famous on a new mission to create the classroom of tomorrow. And you could have a front row seat.*

STAT is pleased to announce Dr. Robert D. Ballard as the keynote speaker at CAST 2010 in Houston, Texas.

In collaboration with National Geographic’s The Jason Project, Robert Ballard will share extraordinary details about his travels across the globe, uncovering just a fraction of the mysteries that belie current scientific research. His explorations uncovered historical artifacts and even a ‘Lost City, --much of it by accident. From recent discoveries of living organisms miles beneath the ocean’s surface, to excavating nearly intact shipwrecks in the Black Sea, his quest for answers will take you and your students beyond your classroom textbooks and into the heart of the expedition experience. 

*Register early and your name will be entered in a drawing for a VIP seat and invitation to the exclusive VIP reception with Ballard on Wednesday, November 10! Space is limited and available to Early Bird Registrants. Stay tuned to CAST online for more details!*
