I am home now and have had time to reflect and process my Arctic expedition. It has been an amazing adventure in the Arctic. I feel so fortunate to have been a part of such a fantastic science field experience and worked with amazing researchers from all over the country and the world. To reflect on some of what I learned is an art project that I executed with some of the researchers at Toolik Field Station.
Toolik Station Science Art
My Young Scientists Program (YSP) classrooms created flags that represented their level of polar science knowledge and these flags were documented every day throughout my Arctic research expedition. I wanted the researchers at Toolik to also do this! I requested that the researchers draw what represented their science so that when I go to schools and talk about my expedition I can show my students what types of research goes on up here.
