Learn About Polar Bears Through Live Virtual Events This Fall

This fall Polar Bears International is again offering live virtual events called Tundra Connections. In October and November teachers can connect their classes to one of the live Tundra Connections broadcasts.  During these live sessions students will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from some leading experts on polar bears and Arctic climate change. Through these experiences students will learn about the animals of the Arctic and how they have adapted to survive in the harsh Arctic climate. Students will also see and hear about how climate change is affecting the animals of the Arctic. This year there is a set of broadcasts devoted to STEM topics. Those broadcasts will include information about the technology that scientists use to track and count Polar Bears.
