Mysteries of Antarctica and the Artic
Spend the day at the UM Exhibit Museum of Natural History to learn more about the Poles. Check out the Antarctica's Climate Secrets: One Teacher's Story exhibit on the Museum's fourth floor to learn about Robin Frisch-Gleason's recent trip to Antarctica. Robin is an Ann Arbor 4th grade teacher, who took the trip as part of the Antarctic Drilling Project (ANDRILL). Learn how the drilling project collected ocean floor core samples to research the long-term climate changes in Antarctica, and see a real set of Extreme Cold Weather gear.
Also check out the exhibit in the Museum's Rotunda lobby called From Pole to Pole: UM Research at the Ends of the Earth. Learn how UM Scientists are investigating pollutants in the Artic and frozen mammoths in Siberia.
