Instructors in addition to the field instructors and school organizers (Adrian Jones, University College London, and John Baross, University of Washington) included Dave Cole, Ohio State; Peter Fox and Marshall Ma, DCO Data Science Team/RPI; Mitch Sogin, MBL; Sunshine Menezes and Katie Pratt, DCO Engagement Team/URI.
