Polar Bears International will engage teachers through innovative STEMx educational activities and lessons designed to communicate concepts of global warming and its impact on keystone species. This mini-course will use integrative technologies to explore the relationship between polar bears and their dependency on sea ice. Teachers will learn to use STEMx education content and real–world application to bring climate change and polar bears into the classroom and inspire actions related to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Teachers will also learn how to take students into the field by connecting them to field biologists and researchers, analyzing data collected by field researchers, and introducing students to innovative technology and engineering tools used to study polar bears. Through the lessons, activities, and resources included in this mini–course, teachers will help students learn how their daily actions impact polar bears and their sea ice habitat. The polar bears are closer than you think.
