Please join us in celebrating IPY Polar Week throughout this week and launch a virtual balloon to show your participation! Please take a look at the March Polar Week pages for all the ways you can get involved. For example, today (Tuesday 16th March), from 1230 UTC, and for the rest of the week, the State of the Arctic conference will be webstreamed and will allow virtual participation for classrooms, general public and anyone interested in Arctic science, policy and people. We will have students from Zambia connecting to a Portuguese scientist currently in the UK, as well as several public lectures taking place across the globe and lots of classroom activities for you to try out! Information on all of the above and more can be found at http://www.ipy.org/hidden/item/2293-march-polar-week-2010-what-happens-at-the-poles-affects-us-all
We hope you enjoy celebrating IPY Polar Week with us!
