The NSF supports a range of programs for educators in both formal and informal educational settings:
Polar Programs Subcommittee to the GEO Advisory Committee
The Division of Polar Programs Subcommittee to the GEO Advisory Committee comprises experts who are familiar with polar operations, issues, and research.
PolarTREC is an educational research experience, funded by the National Science Foundation and managed by the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S., in which K-12 teachers participate in polar research, working closely with scientists as a pathway to improving science education.
ARISE-ANDRILL Research Immersion for Science Educators
The ARISE program is open to kindergarten through college science educators from Germany, Italy, New Zealand, and the United States. All applicants must have at least three years of science teaching experience in a K-16 school or institution not including the current school year. For the U.S., this program is supported by the National Science Foundation.
