Event Dates
2016-03-13 - 2016-03-15
Fairbanks, Alaska

The Arctic in the Classroom (TAC) program is currently accepting applications from teachers and researchers for participation in the 'Make an Impact Workshop," the TAC kickoff event, which will take place 13-15 March 2016 during the Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Travel, accommodations, and ASSW registration expenses are covered for workshop participants. Participants are also awarded the opportunity for continued support within The Arctic in the Classroom program. Registration is now open for teachers and researchers. There are approximately 15 spots available. Registration closes on 1 February 2016.

The workshop organizer, the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) seeks:

  • Educators who currently teach in Alaskan Arctic communities with experience or interest in incorporating local Arctic research into their teaching through citizen-science and community based monitoring.

  • Researchers who conduct funded research in the Alaskan Arctic with experience or interest using citizen-science practices as a method to expose teachers, students, and local communities to Arctic research.

TAC aims to bring together the best practices in facilitating successful citizen-science projects and community-based monitoring to support the collaboration of students, teachers, and researchers in arctic communities.

Support for this program is provided by the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and applicable community service payments from federal court settlements.
