Ocean Sciences Meeting – Educator Workshop with Polar-ICE Science Communication Series

The Polar-ICE hosted it’s first compendium Educator Workshop in conjunction with the Polar-ICE Science Communication Series workshop held prior to the 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, LA. Educators from throughout the country spent the morning and early afternoon diving into polar science, data, and discussions of how best to illuminate the authentic process of science when teaching before working with polar scientists to assist with their communication skills and messaging. It was a fantastic way to kick off the educational professional development opportunities provided through Polar-ICE!
