The International Polar Year (IPY), which begins in March 2007 and continues until 2009, is a program of international research and education focused on the Arctic and Antarctic regions.
Our 8th grade teacher, from Rye, New Hampshire, USA, is currently working with a research team in Antarctica. She is diving under the lake ice in the Dry Valleys. You can follow along with her journey by:
1. Reading her online journal
2. Ask questions on Ask The Team
3. Get updates on Twitter, @Antarctica_NH
4. Participate in Live Chats through PolarTREC.org.
Our first live chat is Monday, Nov. 10, 1:30 pm EST.
