Science / project summary
For this EAGER grant, the PI will engage in a formal distance-learning activity as a supplementary educational activity to the Integrated Characterization of Energy, Clouds, Atmospheric state, and Precipitation at Summit project (ICECAPS, NSF grant 0856773). The PI will train students at the University of Idaho (home institution of ICECAPS PI, Von Walden) to use off-the-shelf and relatively inexpensive hand-held devices to conduct experiments analogous to those researchers conduct in Greenland, as part of ICECAPS, with far more sophisticated equipment. This project is funded as a pilot, both to see whether the technological capacity exists to carry out the kinds of instruction the PI envisions and to see whether the project can dovetail with and enhance Science in Education Week, an activity involving U.S. students that is part of the Denmark, Greenland, U.S.-supported Joint Science Education Project (JSEP).
