Arctic Exploration

July 8, 2014

The Livermore Public Library will host a PolarConnect interactive online presentation from Christensen’s Middle School’s science teacher, Regina Brinker, who is currently studying in the Arctic. The event will be held on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 11:30 am at the Civic Center Library.
Learn more about the Arctic and have the opportunity to ask questions of Livermore teacher Regina Brinker as she works in the field.  PolarConnect transports students and the public to remote polar locations to learn about exciting polar science through real-time Internet presentations from teachers and researchers in the field during their PolarTrec expeditions. This event will use online slide presentations, voice over IP, audio, and text chatting to interact with Regina. This presentation is not a live video feed.
Audiences will participate by asking questions via computer microphones and a speakerphone. Regina will return to the Library in-person in October to share her experience with the community.
