What is IPY
Celebrate the International Polar Week and join us for a real-time live event with PolarTREC teacher, Cristina Galvan and the University of Wyoming scientists led by Dr. Merav Ben-David. The team is currently studying polar bear response to sea ice loss in the Arctic Ocean.
This event is free, open to the public, and hosted by ARCUS through the PolarTREC program. Participants will have a chance to ask questions and chat with others during the presentation.
Professor Alfredo Soto Ortega of the Universidad de Magallanes and his students kicked off Polar Week in a cultural credit class by exploring the history of Antarctica. The university will be hosting activities all week. For more information on their events please visit the APECS worldwide lecture series website.
