Theme 6. Polar science education, outreach and communication
success of this IPY derives in part from close connection between
science and outreach. IPY projects and polar institutions have
communicated IPY research in traditional (e.g. print) and modern (e.g.
webcast) formats, and many outreach partners have promoted polar
research in innovative ways to new audiences. This theme presents the
many IPY education and outreach activities initiated by educators,
journalists, media professionals, and researchers, often in unique
partnerships. Talks in these sessions will reveal remarkable
accomplishments, will share experiences and ideas, and will show plans
and progress for continued public attention to polar issues and toward a
broader environmental literacy.
