Join us in celebrating APECS International Polar Week September 2018 from September 17-23! Polar Week is a series of events happening globally, with the goal of promoting the science taking place in polar latitudes.
This September, our theme is #PolarNumbers with a focus on showcasing quantitative aspects of your own polar education and research interests. Everyone deals with numbers - whether it be, for example, the number of penguins in your study, the number of days you spent in the field this summer, the year of a historical event, a statistically significant data point in your recent research, or just your favourite polar-related number - we want to know!’ We encourage you to share your #PolarNumbers through a series of fun and professional activities online, and don’t forget to seek out local events through your National Committee.
- Daily #PolarNumbers ‘challenge’ on social media
- Quizzes - for you to test your polar knowledge at your leisure
- The third Polar Film Festival coordinated by USAPECS
- and more!
