At Ohio State University, POLENET is celebrating Polar Week with a series of engaging polar activities and the launch of a brand new website. The website will feature a new podcast series, photo collection, interactive maps, and a chance to meet the OSU expedition team headed to the ice for the 2009-2010 season.
On campus, POLENET is hosting a series of activities in the foyer of the Earth Sciences Mendenhall Laboratory. Stop by to see a full-size POLENET GPS station set up, guess your weight in Antarctic gear, take your photo as an Emperor penguin, and enter a competition to win a POLENET t-shirt.
Others around the world can log on to www.polenet.org to enter our Polar Challenge. Answer a question about Earth's poles and you'll be in for a chance to win a POLENET t-shirt! Be sure to enter before Friday, as the Polar Challenge will end. In its place, you can check out our new website- live on Friday, October 9th!
