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.

Have you ever considered inviting a teacher to participate in your field research project? By incorporating a teacher in your research, you gain an enthusiastic team member that assists with research and camp activities, helps get the word out about your research project to students and public audiences, and isn’t afraid of an adventure. Teachers have a lot to gain by working with researchers; they learn about the polar regions, how science is conducted, and make invaluable connections to the research community.
