WINNIPEG — FortWhyte Alive is hosting students and educators from across Manitoba today for 2015 Arctic Science Day.
The day-long event is a partnership between FortWhyte and the University of Manitoba’s Centre for Earth Observation Science and Schools on Board-ArcticNet.
Students will learn about the science behind climate change research in the Arctic. University scientists will lead hands-on learning, sharing their knowledge and experience, while giving participants the opportunity to get in touch with the realities of doing research in the north and how scientists are working to understand the impacts of climate change.
Roughly 200 junior high and high school participants from 10-15 schools will experience fieldwork activities both inside and outside in simulated Arctic conditions.
