Live Public Call to the South Pole With Jargie the Science Girl
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 22 April 2020
Where: Online: 2:00 PM AKDT (3 PM PDT, 4 PM MDT, 5 PM CDT, 6 PM EDT)
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is hosting weekly live calls to the South Pole to chat with IceCube "winterovers" John Hardin and Yuya Makino about living and working at the coldest, harshest place on Earth. In this week's special kids' edition, our winterovers will be joined by special guest Jocelyn Argueta—aka Jargie the Science Girl! Jocelyn visited the South Pole in December 2019 to work on IceCube through the PolarTREC program. She will share about her journey to the South Pole and teach a little science along the way.
Bring your own questions about life and science at the South Pole. It's free and open to all ages. Watch the Facebook event page on Wednesday (see link above) for the Zoom Webinar link.
