legacy of long-term teacher-researcher collaborations, improved
teacher content knowledge and instructional practices, and
broad public interest and engagement in polar science.
PolarTREC teachers will spend three to eight weeks in the
Arctic or Antarctic, working closely with researchers in the
field as an integral part of the science team. PolarTREC teachers
and researchers will be matched based on similar goals and
interests, and teachers will be trained to meet the program
requirements prior to the field season. While in the field,
teachers and researchers will communicate extensively with
their colleagues, communities, and students of all ages across
the globe, using a variety of tools including online journals,
photos, other multimedia, and web-based seminars.
Teachers and research projects will be selected and matched
to fill the approximately 12 openings available. All major
expenses associated with teacher participation in PolarTREC
field experiences are covered by the program and program partners,
including transportation to and from the field site, food,
lodging, and substitute teacher costs.
PolarTREC is funded by the National Science Foundation and
