Expedition News and Photo Gallery
Dr. Kanatous and the Polar Science Ice Team will be posting weekly updates and photos from Antarctica. You can find them here in the Expedition News Focus Area. If you have questions about any of the weekly reports, go to the Messages Area, choose Expedition News from the Shared Forums list, and Post a New Message.
The scientists are busy working in Antarctica and have a slow satellite Internet connection; they may not have time to answer all your questions, but they will get to as many as they can. Helping out the Ice Team will be Dr. Thomas Hawke, who went to Antarctica with Dr. Kanatous last year. Dr. Hawke and the Polar Science Lab Team are analysing last year's data and receiving this year's data in Dr. Hawke's lab at York University in Toronto. The Lab Team may answer some of your questions as well.
Teams working in this field will collaborate to solve the following problems:
- Get to know the 2006 Polar Science teams.
Read the bios of the 2006 Polar Science Teams:
- Dr. Kanatous, Ice Team
- Dr. Hawke, Lab Team
To find the bios, choose Teams from the menu and then Dr. Kanatous and Dr. Hawke from the team list. Be sure to choose Team Members from the menu to access each scientist's bio.
- Tell us about your class.
In their bios, the 2006 Polar Science Teams described their educational backgrounds and research interests. Introduce your class and yourself to the project scientists and the other participating classes. Go to the Account section of the Polar Science web site and update your Personal Profile.
Note: Remember to follow your school's Acceptable Use Policy and guard your personal information. Give us some information about your school and class, the topics you are studying in Science class and your interests. Don't give us personal information such as your last name, e-mail address or chat name. Be safe!
- Read the weekly updates from the 2006 Polar Science Teams.
The Polar Science Teams will be posting news updates in this focus area once a week. Barring any technical difficulties, we will try to have updates from the Ice Team in Antarctica published every Monday throughout the project. The Lab team may post updates as needed.
Read the updates and discuss them in your class. Make a list of any questions you might want to ask Dr. Kanatous and his team about the news updates.
Go to the Messages area, choose Expedition News from the Shared Forums list, and Post a New Message.
