PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and Collaborating) is a program in which formal and informal educators spend 3-6 weeks participating in hands-on field research experiences in the polar regions. The goal of PolarTREC is to invigorate polar science education and understanding by bringing educators and polar researchers together.
Online version of the Eagle Times news article describing Frank Kelley's PolarTREC expedition in Barrow, Alaska. Frank Kelley, PI Anne Jensen, and the team are conducting archaeological studies at the Nuvuk site outside Barrow, Alaska.
The Surface Archaeology Activity will allow you to develop some of the knowledge and skills that archaeologists use to do their work while also getting a chore done at home. The steps are really easy, and then you can decide to maybe tackle another room in the house.
