Late June marks the end of the school year in New Jersey, so I embarked on a whirlwind tour in mid-June to visit several local elementary, middle, and high schools. Over the course of 5 days, I was able to speak to almost 500 students, teachers, and administrators about the PolarTREC program and introduce them to the basics of polar science, the Arctic, and Antarctica. The amount of thoughtful questions and enthusiasm towards learning about the Polar Regions was overwhelming. But in a good way!
I had so much fun speaking to all the different groups, and I can’t wait to go back to some of these schools in the fall to discuss the results of our fieldwork in Switzerland.
So be sure to check out all the fun by clicking on the video below.
If I came to your school and you didn’t see your picture, don’t worry. Check out these links to view the full gallery of photographs!
