  1. I’m pretty excited to contribute to this discussion. I have a new program in the works, NOAA SOS in the classroom (SOS Explorer) where we have the ability to visualize data, animate seemless through it as well as build a multimedia story around it. My name is Hilary Peddicord and we are here in Boulder, just next door to CitSci!
