through Engaged Science
Preparing educators to bring climate change research to the classroom
Giving teachers the opportunity to engage and collaborate with leading polar research scientists and science educators
Arctic Plant Phenology Learning Through Engaged Science (APPLES) is preparing middle school, high school, and undergraduate educators in polar research to engage their students in similar studies in the classroom. Educators in this project will have access to, contribute to, and disseminate information from the long-term and ongoing research project which focuses on changes in the phenology of arctic plants and how this relates to climate change. APPLES will demonstrate, through training, the results obtained by phenological observation and experimentation.
