Using Arctic Science as a Vehicle for STEM Education and Citizen Empowerment - Submissions to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, with Laura Petes


On September 28, the Administration will host the first-ever White House Arctic Science Ministerial, bringing together leaders from foreign governments around the world to expand joint collaborations focused on Arctic research, observations, monitoring, and data-sharing. In support of the Ministerial, the White House is issuing a call-to-action for individuals, organizations, and institutions from all sectors to help people better understand, adapt to, and address the changing conditions in the Arctic. One of the themes is "Using Arctic Science as a Vehicle for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education and Citizen Empowerment." We would welcome submissions from the education community. Please note that these should be new, specific, and measurable steps/projects that raise understanding and awareness and/or catalyze solutions. We are looking for input by COB on July 29.
