We request that all participants pre-register to join PolarConnect live events. Anyone with an e-mail address can register, and registration and participation is FREE!

To register, please fill out the form below and click the “save” button at the bottom to submit your registration. Shortly thereafter, you will receive a confirmation email that we received your registration. Additional instructions on how to join the webinar will be sent out prior to the event. If you DO NOT receive an email by the day of the event, please contact us at info [at] polartrec.com.

The events are listed first in the Alaska Time Zone. If you would like to convert this to another time zone you can use the World Clock Meeting Planner to convert to your time zone. From the pull down list, select a city for your time and select Anchorage as a representative city for the Alaska Time Zone. Participants can enter and exit the event as needed.

How will my information be used?
  • We will only use your email address to respond to your requests for information, to assist you with set up and troubleshooting as needed. If there is a problem and we are not able to contact you by email, we may contact you by telephone. We will not sell or share your email address with anyone outside of the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. without your permission.

  • We report annually to our funding agency about program participation and participant demographics. It is of great assistance to us if you complete the information below for our reporting purposes.

  • Participant demographic information is shared with the presenting teachers and researchers so that they are better able to structure the presentation to the participants online during the particular live event.


NOTE: As this activity is supported by US federal funding, ARCUS has made the difficult decision to temporarily pause collaborations with Russian-based organizations; individuals from Russian- or Belarus-based organizations will not be allowed to register or participate in this event at this time.
