Polar-ICE and Palmer LTER
Palmer LTER is currently collaborating with the Polar-ICE program. The Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education (ICE) program is 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, funded by the National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs. Polar ICE focusses on creating communities of practice among educators and polar scientists around understanding of polar science and data through workshops, data visualization tools, and data-focused activities appropriate for middle-high school as well as undergraduate students (grades 6-16).
Winter of 2015-16
We are hosting a variety of live Video Tele-Conferences (VTCs) with the science teams of Palmer LTER.
