2020 PolarTREC Expeditions Postponed

COVID-19 has had far reaching impacts. In response to this uncertainty and for the safety of the teams and the communities of which they would visit, the deployment of all the 2020 PolarTREC educators to both the Arctic and Antarctica has been postponed until 2021. Consequently, we will not be recruiting any new educators in 2021.We hope that you will continue to visit the website and join the Polar Education List to learn about new resources, lesson plans (including virtual lessons) and the latest news on our program.

PolarTREC has several activities, opportunities, and resources for educators to learn more about the polar regions and polar science. Navigate through the features of this page to learn more about the PolarTREC program, explore ways to participate in research experiences or the polar science online course, and search for resources to teach about the polar regions.
