Science Communication Workshop for Polar Scientists
Educators assisted scientists in building science communication skills (Ocean Science Meeting, February 21, 2016 New Orleans, LA at the Aquarium of the Americas). Fourteen educators from thirteen states participated in this workshop. Participating educators worked directly with 2-3 polar researchers at the Scientist Communication Series workshop to brainstorm effective practices for the scientists to communicate their research to broader audiences. Agenda and list of educator participants.
- Polar-ICE EARTH Workshop 2017 – July 16-21, 2017 (Monterey, CA)
- Polar-ICE EARTH Workshop 2016 – July 24-29, 2016 (New Brunswick, NJ)
Science Investigations (Sci-I) Workshop
Science Investigation (Sci-I) Educator Workshops are designed to increase student skills in designing and conducting science investigations as well as analyzing and interpreting data in alignment with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) requirements. Educators participating in the Sci-I workshops will be invited to attend the Student Polar Research Symposiums, where students develop science posters and meet polar scientists.
