polarsternBorn from an IASC-funded workshop, now more than 500 scientists from over 19 nations are spending a year in the Arctic ice to collect important data on the Arctic climate system. From September 2019 through October 2020, the icebreaker RV Polarstern will drift across the Arctic near the North Pole frozen in sea ice during one of the most extensive Arctic research expeditions ever conducted.

Connect your students with the MOSAiC (Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of ArctiClimate) expedition and bring real science into your classroom each week with MOSAiC Monday. Your students can track the expedition in real time on a map, graph Arctic oceanographic data from the ship, watch video interviews with scientists and crewmembers, and engage in short Arctic-related engagements that, if you're in the US, support your NGSS curriculum. 

Sign up for MOSAiC Monday from CIRES today - and tell your educator colleagues to do the same!
