Stem at the Poles! PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and
Collaborating) is currently accepting applications from both educators
and researchers for the PolarTREC program.

Applications for a field-based research experience in the polar regions
for 2020-2021 will be accepted from both U.S. informal science educators
as well as formal U.S. classroom teachers (teaching in grades 6-12).
Informal educators should have the primary focus on outreach to middle
and high school students and/or professional development for their
teachers. Applications will be to participate in field research learning
experiences during the 2020 (usually Arctic) or 2020-21 (usually
Antarctic) field seasons. The Educator application deadline is Monday, 7
October 2019. The teacher & informal educator application is available

We need Researchers! Researchers that work in the polar regions are
encouraged to submit an application to host an educator during the
2020-2021 field seasons.
