This winter, we are excited to offer two opportunities for you to connect your classroom with scientists in Antarctica: I.D. Antarctica and Palmer LTER Video Teleconferences.
I.D. Antarctica: Help polar scientist Andrew Corso identify the “mystery creatures” that he encounters during his cruise along with West Antarctic Peninsula starting in mid-January. This opportunity is open to all grade levels and no registration is required. Just sign up to receive our twice-weekly blog posts (see box at top right of this page.)
Palmer LTER Video Teleconferences: Find out what it’s like to do “Research on the Ice” via a real-time video teleconference (VTC) with a scientist at the Palmer Long-Term Ecological Research Station in Antarctica. There are a limited number of spots available for grade 3-9 classrooms, and we ask that educators meet certain requirements.
