Apply at the PolarTREC website:

PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and Collaborating) is
currently accepting applications from researchers for the seventh year
of teacher research experiences. Researchers are invited to submit an
application to host a PolarTREC teacher during the 2013 (usually arctic)
or 2013-2014 (usually Antarctic) field seasons.

More information and application forms are available at:

An archive of the informational webinar (web seminar) held for
researchers and teachers interested in the PolarTREC program is
available at:


PolarTREC--a program of the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S.
(ARCUS)--is a professional development program for educators, which
pairs teachers with researchers to improve science education through
authentic polar research experiences. The program integrates research
and education to produce a 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 two 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 researchers must be at U.S. Institutions. Applications from
researchers on NSF-funded projects will receive priority in the
selection process. Researchers should have secured funding for their
research project prior to applying; if funding is pending and you would
still like to host a teacher, please contact PolarTREC at
[hidden email] to discuss your situation.

PolarTREC is funded by the National Science Foundation Office of Polar

Application Deadline: Monday, 3 September 2012, 5:00 p.m. AKDT.
