The Arctic in the Classroom program is currently accepting applications from teachers and researchers for participation in the Make an Impact workshop. The workshop aims to bring together local teachers with Arctic researchers to collaborate on the development of STEM educational resources, and provide an opportunity for Arctic science to have broader impacts on educators and Alaska Native students.
The Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) is organizing the workshop, and is looking for 1) educators that currently teach in Alaskan communities with experience or interest in incorporating local Arctic research into their teaching, or 2) researchers who conduct funded research in the Alaskan Arctic with experience or interest in using citizen science practice to expose teachers, students, and local communities to local Arctic research. Registration, travel, and accommodations are covered for the workshop! Registration ends on February 1st, 2016 at 5 p.m. Alaska Standard Time.
The 2016 Make an Impact workshop will be held from March 13th-15th in Fairbanks, AK.
