APECS-ARICE Webinar: From Icebreakers Into Classrooms - Opportunities for Educators and Scientists
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 5 May 2020
Where: Online: 6:00-7:30 am AKDT, 10:00-11:30 am EDT
In September 2019, the German icebreaker Polarstern and the Russian research vessel Akademik Fedorov set sail into the Central Arctic sea ice. With the aim to collect data around the coupled Arctic climate system, Polarstern will drift through the Arctic for an entire year as part of the MOSAiC project. MOSAiC education and outreach activities aim to create visibility of field research and awareness for globally important topics of Arctic change. Training of early career researchers was facilitated with a field camp for graduate students - the MOSAiC School. Further, educators and teachers collected materials and data which is now shared in classrooms and in online learning tools. During this webinar you will learn about the wealth of learning resources created through participation in the MOSAiC Expedition. Ask questions of young researchers, educators and teachers on how to use or implement experiments, exercises and personal experiences in classrooms and what you can take away from an massive open online course.
Speakers are Mauro Hermann MOSAiC Ambassador (ETH Zurich), Anne Gold (CIRES, CU Boulder), Rainer Lehmann (Polar Educators Germany), Falk Ebert (Herder Gymnasium) and Friederike Krueger (Integrierte Gesamtschule Bothfeld). Moderation: Josefine Lenz (AWI & APECS).
