Virtual classes from Arctic research stations by scientist
This is the main component of the EDU-ARCTIC program. Transmissions from polar stations, will be provided for schools. Additionally, to raise the attractiveness and diversity of scientific subjects, some special transmissions with selected experts in polar research and Earth sciences will be provided by other institutions. Online lessons will be dealing with the following disciplines and research topics: environmental sciences, geophysics (seismology, Earth magnetism), geology, geomorphology, climatology, climate change, atmospheric chemistry and physics, hydrology, ecology, soil science, oceanography, microbiology, marine, biology, biodiversity, paleoecology, limnology and additionally anthropology, the sociology of Arctic regions, human biology and medicine, genetics, zoology, biology and to some extent socio-humanities.
Czy plejstocen to tylko zlodowacenie? Jakie warunki panowały wtedy na Ziemi? Co to jest megafauna i jakie były jej cechy charakterystyczne? Czy warto być gigantem? Czy naprawdę miało miejsce "wielkie wymieranie"? Czy megafauna nie pozostawiła po sobie śladów?
Did you ever wonder, where different types of rock come from and if they are related? With this lesson you will get a good overview of the rock cycle, and how rocks can be related to each other. This will illustrate how all rocks are connected somehow. The lesson will end with a KAHOOT quiz. Students can participate individually, with their smartphones, or with a computer, as a class. You'll need to go to kahoot.it and enter GAME PIN CODE displayed on the screen. We hope you'll enjoy it!
The brown bears of Norway and Sweden are monitored with the help of the faeces they leave behind moving through the forest. Here you will learn all about how this is actually done and how much information you can get from bear poop.
Earth is called a blue planet because water covers over half of its surface. It is said, that “water is life”. How much water can we find in the land of snow and ice?

Choć o Islandii mówi się, że to "kraj lodu i ognia", to w życiu mieszkańców znacznie większe znaczenie mają woda i powietrze. Wybierzmy się więc na wycieczkę dookoła wyspy - dowiemy się jak powstały najsłynniejsze, islandzkie krajobrazy i jak wygląda życie wśród nich.
Laser scanning is a modern and relatively unknown method of Earth observation. On this lesson you will learn what is a laser scanner, the basic principles behind its workings and where is this new technology used.
Может ли лед быть теплым? Как быстро могут двигаться ледники? Может ли теч вода через кристаллы льда? На эти и другие вопросы ответит гляциолог, профессор Пётр Гловацки, многолетний руководитель Польской полярной станции Хорнсунн.
In brown bears, males and females behave differently. While males move away from their natal home once they become adults, females continue to stay close to their mothers. In this webinar you will learn why it is important to consider this difference in scientific research and brown bear management.

A chance for students and their teachers to win a trip to an Arctic station
EDU-ARCTIC invites pupils from secondary schools across Europe and outside to join the Arctic Competition with their teachers and develop a science project or an innovation project designed for an arctic environment. Young students and their teachers who are fascinated by disciplines such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics, though not yet scientists, will have the opportunity to take part in a scientific expedition in the Arctic. The Arctic competition is for teams of one pupil, aged 13 to 20, and one teacher. Participating teams can come from secondary schools across Europe and outside. The participation in the Arctic competition is voluntary. You can ask questions about the competition before deciding whether or not to participate. Even if you do agree to participate, you may withdraw yourself from the project at any time, without giving a reason and without penalty.
