Polar Science, Global Discoveries: IPY Research Update for Teachers
Educators work on an activity at a recent IPY Symposium in Denver, CO.

During this half-day symposium, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in celebration of the International Polar Year (IPY), scientists and education specialists shared information with teachers about the global climate change. The presenters led activities that enhanced the participants' knowledge about the topic and that can be easily replicated in their classrooms. All participants received a DVD and 2-CD set from NOAA as well as a list of related URLs that can be used for further exploration of activities and programs related to the IPY.


This symposium was held at the NSTA National Conference on Science Education in Boston, MA. The program was designed for teachers of grades 5-12.
