Dr. Sian Proctor is a geology professor at South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, Arizona. Throughout her adult life she has pushed herself to take on new challenges and to learn  new things that she can bring back into the classroom. She has a B.S. in environmental science, M.S. in geology, and a Ph.D. in science education. Both her masters and Ph.D. research involved the use of technology and understanding how individuals learn. She is continually developing new ways to engage her students and to present scientific information in interesting ways. She has a strong curriculum development background, has traveled and taught around the world, was a finalist for the 2009 NASA Astronaut Program, and was on the Discovery Channel reality TV show called The Colony. Sian’s experiences on The Colony taught her how to live in a unique environment with limited resources. She believes in life-long learning and tries to instill this mentality with her students. The goal of the Education Outreach Program is to document and disseminate to the general population the HI-SEAS research projects occurring during the two week MDRS mission and the four-month mission in Hawaii. Research projects will be documented using both video and photo cameras. Crew interviews will also be conducted. Media will be disseminated on a daily bases via the HI-SEAS website (hi-seas.org) and through social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
