WISSARD Science in the Classroom
The rich interdisciplinary nature of the WISSARD project lends itself to classroom exploration. STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math applications abound with WISSARD science.
WISSARD Education and Outreach efforts have focused on teacher professional development efforts through the National Science Teachers Association and with our partners at the ANDRILL (Antarctic Research Drilling). We have an ongoing relationship with teachers and students on the Crow Reservation in south-central montana, where young polar scientists are engaging in hands-on polar science each month.
Check out the Project and Activity links to learn more about WISSARD science in the classroom. Stay tuned for links to downloadable WISSARD classroom activities and more information about our Design a Microbe contest, as well as blogs and videos from the ice during the 2012-2013 field season!
