Polar Science, Global Discoveries: IPY Research Update for Teachers
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.
Underwritten in part by NSF, NASA, and NOAA.
