For Researchers

Have you ever considered inviting a teacher to participate in your field research project? By incorporating a teacher in your research, you gain an enthusiastic team member that assists with research and camp activities, helps get the word out about your research project to students and public audiences, and isn’t afraid of an adventure! Teachers have a lot to gain by working with researchers; they learn about the polar regions, how science is conducted, and make invaluable connections to the research community.

Important Update about PolarTREC

Many of you have been inquiring about a 2015-2016 PolarTREC program. At this time, we do have have any funding to host a program for the 2015-2016 Arctic and Antarctica expeditions. We will continue to support our PolarTREC alumni of teachers and researchers as well as the remaining expeditions for 2014 and early 2015 to Antarctica. We hope you will continue to follow these amazing teachers and the research being conducted in the Polar Regions.

If you are a researcher that wants to host a teacher, please feel free to email us. If you want to continue to see researchers and teachers working together, please contact NSF Division of Polar Programs with your concerns.

All the resources, past photos, journals, and archives will remain available for you to access and use.
