Making the Team
You are planning a climbing expedition and can only bring 14 team members. Make a list of who you'd include on your expedition and why. To help you make your list, think about what kinds of skills you would want your team members to know. For example, if you want to conduct scientific experiments on the expedition, then you may need a scientist or two. Keep in mind that not everyone will go to the very top, as was true in the Mt. Everest expedition, but every member has an important role. As you put together your team, read Whitney Stewart's comments on climbing, and think about why particular people were selected for the Everest team.
