Take a photographic journey through Antarctica when Robin shares stories and images of her geological field work on the frozen continent. She will also discuss the natural history of this spectacular land and her upcoming trip to study Antarctica's role in global climate change. Robin was recently selected to join a team of educators and scientists to return to Antarctica as part of the ARISE (Research Immersion for Science Educators) program. She will be on "the ice" from early October through early December doing a geophysical study of the Ross Sea area and working on cores drilled below the sea ice.
The goals of the Research Immersion for Science Educators program are to raise public awareness about Antarctic scientific drilling and to integrate polar geoscience content into a range of learning environments.
