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 […]
Polar-ICE launched their initial Polar Data Story with the assistance of scientists Dr. Josh Kohut and Laura Palamara. Check out Data Story #1: Oceanic Features: Where, When, What impact to animals? to explore how water moves at the surface around Palmer Research Station and how that may impact all levels of the Antarctic food web.
The Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education (ICE) program — an integrated education and outreach program designed to provide public access to the Antarctic and Arctic regions through polar data and interactions with the scientists — was funded by the National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs! Polar ICE will focus on creating communities of practice among […]
