Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Portland, Oregon

The NSF-funded Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education (Polar ICE) project is leading an effort to develop a suite of concepts to help Polar scientists and informal and classroom educators to communicate about Polar Regions. Polar scientists are invited to explore our newly developed Polar Literacy Principles (PLP) while practicing and discussing effective techniques for science communication with science communication experts Ari Daniel, a digital producer at NOVA and independent science reporter for public radio programs among other outlets and Dr.

Connecting the Arctic
Sun, 01/21/2018 to Fri, 01/26/2018
Tromsø, Norway

In a world of increasing turmoil the Arctic is still a place for collaboration and peaceful communication. In maintaining peaceful relations across borders in the north the encompassing science collaboration has been particular important. The vast ocean that represents the bulk of the arctic area carries large potentials, but also threats. As increasingly larger parts of it will be utilized, how do we communicate and conduct search and rescue. And more importantly, how do we secure productive and healthy oceans.

Mon, 01/22/2018 to Fri, 01/26/2018
Anchorage, Alaska

The Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, has been bringing together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public for over twenty years to discuss the latest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Over 700 people attend this 4-day long conference held annually during the month of January.

Thu, 01/25/2018
