Operation IceBridge personnel participated in this year's Goddard Science Jamboree on June 5. The yearly event is an opportunity for scientists and engineers at Goddard to share information about their meetings with each other. This year's Science Jamboree featured displays from a variety of Goddard's science missions, career panel talks, Hyperwall demonstrations, information sessions and a special lecture by Goddard Chief Scientist Jim Garvin.

Members of the Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) and Land, Vegetation and Ice Sensor (LVIS) instrument teams ran display tables with posters, photos and videos alongside a general IceBridge information display, adding a wealth of information about the airborne polar mission. IceBridge scientists and engineers answered questions about polar science, IceBridge's instruments and the experience of surveying Arctic and Antarctic ice from the air. With the completion of a record-breaking Arctic campaign and several weeks of intense Antarctic campaign planning ahead, the Science Jamboree was a good chance for members of the IceBridge team to get together and show off all of their hard work. Special thanks go out to all the people who took time out of their busy days to make the IceBridge presence at this year's jamboree a success.
