Science / project summary
Through this grant, Dartmouth will lead the U.S. contributions to the Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) for the next three years (starting in February 2015). The leadership role will include: sending a small team of graduate student and postdoctoral researchers with polar field experience, along with a Dartmouth faculty member, to Greenland to lead field science education in the JSEP programs; continued training of Dartmouth graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in cross-cultural science communication to advance outreach in Greenland and share this training more broadly with the Dartmouth community; hosting planning meetings and workshops to design the curriculum for Science and Education Week and to help coordinate efforts by all parties engaged in JSEP; working with our partners in Greenland to increase the visibility of JSEP in Greenland; and sharing and assessing the results of our work through presentations in education-focused symposia at national meetings and publications in scholarly journals. As an outcome of the NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship grant to Dartmouth to develop the Polar Environmental Change program, these researchers have many years of experience with science, outreach, and the logistics of working in Kangerlussuaq and at Summit, Greenland, and the students, postdocs, and faculty have contributed significantly to the JSEP programs since 2011. In addition, they have a strong network of colleagues and scholars in Greenland that can continue to help us increase participation and engagement of students and teachers from Greenland. A Dartmouth-JSEP partnership is a natural and synergistic collaborative opportunity to provide significant international Arctic science education and outreach to students from Greenland, Denmark, and the U.S., with broader impacts for international communities of stakeholders, future leaders, and polar scientists.
