Tune in, stream from the internet, ask questions, and use the information provided to stimulate debate in your classrooms about important IPY projects and issues.

CKLB would love to put your students on the air and allow them to ask participating IPY project representatives questions directly, live during the broadcast. This can be done by providing Kristi Skebo () with a school phone number. CKLB will set up a time with you in advance to connect with your classroom during the program, and allow your students to ask questions live on the air. Please contact Kristi Skebo for more information.
