About the Science
- Science columnist Lee Hotz describes the project at WAIS Divide, Antarctica, where a team of scientists drills into ten-thousand-year-old ice cores to extract and analyze vital data on our changing climate.
- Comments from expert scientist: The video is concise and easy to understand for people not within science fields. The speaker, Lee Hotz, captures interest without using much jargon. This seems like a nice, brief introduction into Antarctic ice drilling.
About the Pedagogy
- This is a TED-Ed video lecture, which viewers can watch and then take a quick quiz before digging deeper into some other online resources that align with the video.
- Quick quiz and think questions are for accountability rather than conceptual understanding.
