Follow a Teacher’s Expedition to the Bering Sea

Tom Harten, a teacher with the CHESPAX environmental education program of the Calvert County Public Schools in Maryland, will travel to the Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea as part of the PolarTREC program, a project that partners teachers with scientists conducting polar research in both the arctic and in Antarctica. Starting on July 15, Harten’s month-long project will investigate the impact of climate change on seabirds nesting on these remote islands. He will post journal entries from the field as video and audio podcasts and answer questions from students and teachers.
