As a current recipient of a Northern Resident Award, from the Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies (ACUNS), As a Bachelor of Education student, I am interested in learning about how the recent International Polar events and activities served students and educators, as well as what IPY education outreach resources have been used and by whom during and after the International Polar Year. The IPY was a terrific example of grassroots education outreach and serves as a model for how educational possibilities may evolve from great ideas and hard work. I am interested in learning more about the legacy of the IPY as it pertains to northern classrooms and the ability for students and educators to source educational materials and network opportunities with researchers, scientists and other classrooms.
With your support, my research I will investigate participation in the International Polar Year events/activities as well as what IPY education outreach resources have been used and by whom during and after the International Polar Year.
