Puerto Rico Celebrates Antarctica Day
Event Type: Lectures/Panels/Discussions
When: 1 December 2017
Where: Metropolitan University, San Juan, Puerto Rico
PolarTREC Alumni Armando Caussade is hosting the first ever Antarctica Day celebration in Puerto Rico!
Despite the post-hurricane issues, Armando was able to obtain approval from Metropolitan University to hold a three-hour event geared towards a small number of graduate students attending the university. The event will feature a talk on the Antarctic treaty, short documentaries on Antarctica and Antarctic science (including Dr. Jim Madsen's "Chasing the Ghost Particle), plus his own experience with PolarTREC. There will be a round table discussion with students for them to share their opinions.
