Archive: IPY/NSTA Symposium: Arctic and Antarctic Living Systems, Birmingham, AL: December 7, 2007

During this half-day symposium, sponsored by NSF, NOAA, and NASA in celebration of the International Polar Year (IPY), scientists and education specialists talked to teachers about the effects of climate change on Arctic and Antarctic living systems. The presenters led activities that enhanced the participants' knowledge about ecosystems, feedback loops, the carbon cycle, and climate change. The activities served as models for activities the teachers could do with students in their classrooms. All participants received a DVD and CD set from NOAA, and a unit plan, as well as a list of related URLs that can be used in the classroom for further exploration of the topic.
