– Polar Educators, International (PEI) is a CliC Sponsored organization

Polar Educators, International (PEI), an international organization created to sustain and enhance the many successful education initiatives begun under the last International Polar Year (http://www.polareducator.org/) sponsored by CliC and the Arctic Research Consortium of the US, is pleased to announce the development of a new Master Class series targeting a dual audience: educators seeking cutting-edge professional development on the latest polar science discoveries and researchers interested in learning proven tactics for communicating scientific concepts in a clear and meaningful way.

We welcome your support in getting the word out to your communities and networks, and have attached a flyer advertising the first class, “Slip Sliding Away: Ice Sheets and Sea Level Rise,” held 7-23 May 2014, for that purpose.

Featuring leading researcher Dr. Richard Alley and polar educator, Ms. Nell Herrmann the class is being offered free to all participants.  Membership in PEI is required for participation in Master Class activities. Registration is due by 2 May 2014, with the initial web seminar taking place Wednesday, 7 May 2014 @ 8PM EDT/Thursday, 8 May 2014 @ 0000 GMT.
