The National Science Foundation recently awarded Dartmouth the lead role in implementing the U.S. contributions to the Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) in Greenland. Since 2011, our graduate students in the IGERT Polar Environmental Change program have been contributing to this program by sharing their science with the JSEP students and teachers from Greenland, Denmark, and he U.S. We are looking forward to our leadership role in Science Education Week and our continued, but now formal, collaboration with Kasper Busk, the lead JSEP educator from Greenland.
Dartmouth’s Institute of Arctic Studies, in cooperation with the US National Science Foundation and the Government of Greenland, is planning an exciting polar science field program based in Greenland for teachers and high school students from Greenland, Denmark, and the United States. This year’s program will run from June 30 to July 20, 2015.
We’ve been busy planning and setting up new tools for sharing our ideas, thoughts, and experiences, including this blog. We’ll be blogging soon and also tweeting from @JSEP_GL.
