Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


September 16, 2019

After months of group emails and skype meetings, the MOSAiC School was finally able to meet in person. APECS sponsored an ‘Icebreaker’ BBQ – everyone was clearly excited to begin our adventure. The love of polar research was a unifying topic and the chat came naturally. How lucky were we to be embarking with such an amazing group of people?
