What are Projects?
Projects are a collection of PolarTREC expeditions that are related and/or share the same research project. The funding sources, title, and other parameters of the research project may change from year to year but the overall research focus is the same. These expeditions are often in the same location and involve many of the same team members over multiple years.
We created Projects as a way to show the depth and breadth of the research that is taking place in the Polar Regions. It’s not often apparent that many of the expeditions are multi-year research projects. The goal is to showcase the on-going PolarTREC contributions to the magnitude of the science, in various aspects of the continuing projects. Projects that have had multiple teachers over time offer updated journal content, unique field experiences, and new learning opportunities every year. PolarTREC Projects content and related resources are a great way to build and develop STEM curriculum in classrooms and communities. Projects allow users to learn more about the science and see all the teachers and researchers involved in the research project.
