Hi all,
Each year APL and the Pacific Science Center partner to put on the Polar Science Weekend, an event run through lots of volunteer energy. This year it looks like Future of Ice is also sponsoring.

If you are interested in joining the fun, please see below for more info and contact Harry Stern if you'd like to help out (harry at apl.washington.edu). Note that included in the activities is a science communication workshop.

Polar Science Weekend is coming up fast-- Friday Feb 27 through Sunday March 1.
We could use some oceanographic help with a few of the activities, if any Oceanography grad students might be interested.

I'm attaching a list of the activities.
In particular, we could use help with:
-- The Influence of Polar Seas on the Global Ocean
(ocean circulation)
-- Ocean Watchdogs
(demonstration of oceanographic mooring, acoustic release)
-- Where Does Arctic Ocean Water Come From?
(chemical tracers)

For other activities, check with me or the organizer.

Here is the web link for registration:

The weekend is divided into shifts, as follows:
Fri Feb 27: 10-2 (all one shift)
Sat Feb 28: 10-1, 12:30-3:30, 3-6
Sun Mar 1: 10-1, 12:30-3:30, 3-6
You can sign up for one or more shifts.
You can also sign up for a Science Communication Workshop on Tuesday Feb 24 from 2:45 to 5:45 at APL/Henderson Hall.
Staff from Pacific Science Center will show you good ways to communicate science to the general public.

It's gonna be fun!
