Speak with scientists onboard a research cruise in Antarctica

On April 14, anyone with a computer was able to speak with PolarTREC teacher Juan Botella and scientists, including JISAO's Nancy Williams, onboard the Icebreaker N.B. Palmer off the coast of Antarctica. The real-time PolarConnect event gave participants the opportunity to learn more about the oceanography of the Antarctic and how scientists are studying this unique environment.

Anyone was able to participate including classrooms, teachers, and interested members of the public. The event was hosted through the PolarTREC PolarConnect program, and participants had the chance to learn from the scientists, ask questions, and chat with others during the presentation.

For more information about the science that Mr. Botella is involved in, please read his journals on the PolarTREC website.
