Polar Ice: A Teacher Workshop on Climate Science (two opportunities!)
Polar ice cores give us the most incredible details about past climate changes ---
which put current climate changes in perspective and provide data to improve climate models.
At the workshop, you will get:
* an introduction to this field of science
* several classroom ready activities

* plus . . . a light lunch!!
When: November 11, 2023 (Saturday) from 10 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Western Michigan University - Michigan Geological Repository for Research & Education in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This workshop will also tour the MGRRE facility and analyze a sample rock core; see parallels to cores of ocean sediment and polar ice.
When: December 3, 2023 (Sunday) from 12:30 pm to 4 pm
