Students will individually weigh a random sample of pennies. The data will be graphed to look for patterns, then explanations will be sought to explain these patterns. Some of the key ideas are using graphical representations of data to help identify patterns. This is a key concept in all sciences, including in the IceCube Neutrino Observatory - data
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 was a real-time event with PolarTREC teacher Casey O'Hara being broadcast from the South Pole Station, Antarctica. Casey presented on the IceCube telescope project and covered a bit about life at the South Pole station.
This article from the San Francisco Chronicle is about Casey O'Hara's upcoming expedition to Antarctica. It also includes some great photos from a pre-expedition icecream making lab. You can visit the article online here.
FAIRBANKS — A group of high school science and math teachers who could help unlock the secrets of the universe were in Fairbanks last week. The five teachers, who come from all over the Lower 48 as part of the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation, were training for the construction of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a telescope located at the South
About this time next year, Casey O'Hara, Carlmont High School physics teacher, will experience extreme subzero temperatures, 24 hours of intense sunlight and 10,000 feet of elevation. He'll travel to desolate Antarctica as a member of the largest research project of its kind - the construction of IceCube, the world's biggest telescope for detecting subatomic particles.
