PolarTREC Teacher to Share IceBridge Experience

Posted on by .

On Tuesday Aug. 13, at 1 p.m. EDT, high school science teacher Mark Buesing will host a live online event to share his experiences with Operation IceBridge during this year’s Arctic campaign. This event, known as Polar Connect, is hosted by PolarTREC, an organization that pairs science teachers with scientific expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic as a way of bringing up-to-date research into the classroom and inspiring students to become the next generation of scientists.

During this hour-long event, Buesing and people from the IceBridge team will talk about their time flying over Greenland’s ice sheet, glaciers and sea ice and answering questions from the online audience.
