Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 9 September 2020
Where: Online: 1:30-2:00 pm AKDT, 5:30-6:00 pm EDT
Join us as members of the MOSAiC expedition education and outreach team describe new virtual reality tools (including a new planetarium show) that can be used as immersive resources to bring students to the Arctic and allow them to really experience this unprecedented expedition!
The MOSAiC expedition is one of the largest Arctic research expeditions ever conducted with more than 500 scientists from 19 countries participating. The goal of the expedition is to study all aspects of the changing Arctic climate system by freezing a ship in ice and drifting with the ice for an entire year! Since the start of the expedition in September 2019, MOSAiC scientists have braved sub-zero temperatures, months of total darkness, curious polar bears, and logistical challenges in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these obstacles, this unprecedented expedition has persisted and will continue through October 2020.
