One Week Left to Apply for PolarTREC 2011/2012

Are you an adventurous teacher? Do you prefer cold weather over hot weather? Do you blog or are you willing to start blogging? If you said yes to those questions, you might want to apply for PolarTREC's 2011/2012 field experiences. PolarTREC is looking for twelve teachers who are willing to spend a few weeks (possibly longer) on an Arctic or Antarctic research expedition in 2011 or 2012. Your responsibilities on the expedition may vary but at a minimum you'll be expected to share your experiences with your school and others through a variety of online and offline mediums.

The application deadline is October 1, 2010. You can find the application and FAQs here. Listen to an informational webinar recording about the application and expeditions here.
