International Polar Year, or IPY (2007-2009) is by far the most exciting international scientific and educational opportunity of this century. For the next two years, all eyes will be focused on the physical, social and human dimensions of our planet's polar regions. Watch this blog for news related to Canadian outreach and education efforts related to IPY. Of particular interest to educators!

IPY Data Stories video conference and web cast

In conjunction with the Sea Ice Day on 21 September, the first (and perhaps only) IPY Data Stories video conference and web cast will be held Tuesday the 18th at 1600 UTC (which is 1800 in Germany, noon on the East coast, 10 AM Mountain and 8AM in Alaska.) Hosted by Jennifer Oxenford at University of Pennsylvania with sea ice scientists in Bremerhaven Germany, Boulder, Colorado and Fairbanks, Alaska along with students in each of these locations, discussions will explore recent research findings on changes in Arctic sea ice and life under the sea ice off Antarctica. For more information, including the web address to watch the webcast of the event, which will be archived for on demand viewing, visit the website:
