PolarTREC with Piper Bartlett-Browne

Episode 11,   Nov 14, 2019, 05:59 PM

This summer, Piper Bartlett-Browne, a science teacher at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Dover, traveled to the Arctic to conduct long-term climate change research aboard the U.S. Coast Guard vessel Healy. Piper’s research was part of the PolarTREC Program, a National Science Foundation funded program which invites just 12 teachers each year from the United States to partner with polar scientists and go on 3-6 week expeditions in the Arctic or Antarctic.
On October 16, Piper came to the library to share highlights from her PolarTREC experience, along with some thoughts on how the research applies to her teaching and the Seacoast community. To learn more about her work, check out her Instagram, @polarpipernh.
