PolarTREC, an organization that works to give K12 teachers an opportunity to conduct research in the field while helping to distribute curriculum to classrooms, is looking for a few adventurous educators to join them in conducting arctic research in the next couple of years.
The organization is currently looking for 12 individuals who are interested in going to the Arctic in 2011 or the Antarctic in 2011-2012. If selected, those teachers will assist in the research process on varying levels and will be asked to share their experience with others on their return. More details, including the application form, can be found by clicking here
. If you’re interested, you won’t want to wait to apply. The deadline for submittal is October 1st!
Thanks to Richard Byrne for sharing this information with me and writing about it here
in his own blog. Well, I’m being polite when I say thanks for sharing, because not being a teacher myself, I suspect Richard was actually just taunting me. 😉 (Just kidding! Good luck Richard, I hope you get picked!)
I knew I should have gotten that education degree!
