Live from IPY event held with Mindy Bell, Stacy Kim and the Undersea ROV team from McMurdo Station, Antarctica. There were approximately 12 teachers and 120 students on the event. Due to technical difficulties, the audio portion of the archive discontinues about 3/4 of the way through the event. Full audio is available in the event's separate audio file.
Dividing the class into Little auks and predators, students complete survival game for several seasons. After tallying up total volume of food collected, survival rates of the chicks can be graphed and analyzed.
Students will be able to experience the hazards that Little auks must avoid in order to survive. Students will understand the value of
Live from IPY Event with Mindy Bell, Stacy Kim, and Louise Huffman and the ANDRILL team in McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Over 50 participants at UCAR in Boulder, Colorado for the Super Science Saturday family science event.
The SIPEX expedition was aboard Australia's icebreaking research vessel Aurora Australis in the region of East Antarctica between 110°E and 130°E. Each day while the ship was in the sea ice zone, scientists undertook experiments on the ice floes to learn about the thickness, snow cover and other properties of the sea ice, how it is affected by ocean currents
ANDRILL has established an immersion experience for science educators develop mechanisms and materials to connect ANDRILL with the public. The program provides science educators with an inside view of ANDRILL, engaging them in authentic Antarctic geoscience, and using their expertise in education to implement innovative approaches to geoscience education and public outreach. At Project Iceberg, you can follow ANDRILL, an
Students will use "Susea" the seal—a seal toy that grows in water—to discover the scientific process. This lesson was created by Maggie Prevenas who took part in the Bering Ecosystem Study on the USCGC Healy in the Bering Sea.
Students interact with a seal that grows in water to practice basic measuring and scientific inquiry skills, while learning
