Polar Detectives: the Case of the Missing Ice—Climate Change // Curiosity Expo
Curiosity Expo (CX) (at Pacific Science Center) is a science-filled weekend for the whole community, with hands-on activities led by local experts built around a single, inspiring theme.
For this installment of CX, investigate the impacts that climate change has on the earth. Recent wildfires, melting ice caps, extreme temperature fluctuation, and hurricane intensity have all been linked to climate change. Dive into this pressing topic through hands-on activities, lives science shows, and more.
This event is a partnership between PacSci and University of Washington Polar Science Center and Applied Physics Laboratory.
Activities and experiences (among others) include:
- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration / Alaska Fisheries Science Center / Polar Ecosystems Program—Polar Detectives: the Case of the Missing Ice: Crack the case of the missing ice by learning about Arctic seals, what habitat changes are caused by climate change, and just how important ice is to the seals that rest and raise pups on it.
