--------------------
PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and Collaborating) 
is currently accepting applications from researchers for teacher research 
experiences. Researchers are invited to submit an application to host a 
PolarTREC teacher in the 2018 arctic and/or the 2018-2019 Antarctic 
field seasons. More information and application forms are available 
at: http://www.polartrec.com.
IMPORTANT! Funding is pending for PolarTREC during the 2018-19 
field seasons. ARCUS will keep researcher applicants informed of our 
funding status. If funding is secured, final matches should be made in 
December 2017 or January 2018.

A one-hour informational webinar for both researchers and teachers 
interested in PolarTREC will be held on 
Wednesday, 30 August 2017 at 11:00 am AKDT (12:00 pm PDT,
1:00 pm MDT, 2:00 pm CDT, 3:00 pm EDT). Please register for the event
at: https://www.polartrec.com/teachers/webinar by Monday,
28 August 2017.

PolarTREC, a program of the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S.
(ARCUS), is a project in which middle and high school teachers, as well
as informal science educators participate in polar
research, working closely with scientists as a pathway to improving
science education. 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
projects focus on a wide variety of research activities occurring in
both the Arctic and Antarctic, providing an outstanding opportunity for
researchers to share their passion for polar science through topics that
naturally engage students and the wider public.
 
Through PolarTREC, teachers spend two to six 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 are matched
based on similar science interests; selected researchers will have the
opportunity to interview top applicants and make final selections.
Teachers participate in an orientation and are trained extensively to
meet the program requirements prior to the field season. While in the
field, teachers and researchers communicate extensively with their
colleagues, communities, and students of all ages across the globe,
using a variety of tools including online journals, forums, podcasts,
and interactive webinars from the field.

PolarTREC researchers must be at U.S. institutions. Applications from
researchers on National Science Foundation (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.
 
If you are interested in participating in PolarTREC, but are unable to
apply during the application period, please contact PolarTREC staff at
[hidden email] to discuss opportunities for future participation.
Applications and additional information about researcher and teacher
requirements can be found on the PolarTREC website at:
http://www.polartrec.com.

Researcher Application Deadline: Monday, 4 September 2017.
If PolarTREC funding is secured, we expect that final teacher-researcher
selection decisions will be made in December 2017 or January 2018.
