EARTH SCIENCE WEEK UPDATE: Special Alert!
American Geosciences Institute - May 2019
Take Survey to Help Improve Polar Science Education
Teaching about the Arctic, Antarctica, sea ice, ocean, glaciers, polar bears, or penguins? If you teach or would like to teach about polar topics, you're invited to take a brief, anonymous survey. Findings will inform development of educational resources and activities on polar topics for K-12 students.
For your participation, you can enter a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. To enter the drawing, complete the survey by June 3 and provide your email address (which will not be connected with your survey responses).
This research is being conducted by a longtime Earth Science Week partner, the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation in conjunction with the MOSAiC Arctic research expedition.
Take the survey online today.
