My PolarTREC expedition to the Dry Valleys of Antarctica was an experience of a lifetime. Notice I did not use the word “trip” of a lifetime. This was far more than a trip. It was an experience that is a life-changer. It has been a life-changer for myself, my students, my family, other educators, and other folks
PolarConnect Event with Kevin Dickerson and Dr. Byron Adams discussing the science and field work taking place for the Dry Valleys Ecosystem Study in Antarctica. This event took place on 6 February 2019.
This PolarConnect event was held on 16 December 2010 with Heidi Roop who is working with an ice core drilling team on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. This live event was broadcast and had a live component at the AGU 2010 Fall Meeting.
Live from IPY! event with researcher Heidi Roop and other members of the ice coring team at WAIS Divide Camp, Antarctica. The presentation focused on project and the mechanics and science of ice coring.
This versatile activity was inspired by my own Antarctic voyage (Lollie Garay, Oden Expedition 07) and The Amazing Race. As my students followed the journey through the Antarctic Seas on a USGS map, I realized what a great opportunity this was for them to "see" where I was in a part of the world so foreign to us
PolarTREC teacher Lollie Garay is taking part in an International scientific cruise aboard the Swedish icebreaker, Oden. About 120 students from 10 schools participated in the event. Due to some technical difficulties, there is no archive from the event. Audio and a PDF of the presentation slides is available.
