"In Spring 2012, a team of athletes and scientists embarked upon an historic expedition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first successful American ascent of Mount Everest. The team sought to retrace the steps of the first American ascent of Mount Everest via the difficult West Ridge. The Everest Education Expedition, supported by Montana State University and Montana EPSCoR, placed special emphasis on bringing the excitement of science, discovery, and global adventure into classrooms across Montana and the nation."
