Polar Outreach Catalogue

Using new technologies to make sciences more accessible and transparent to the general public
  • Other
The vision of the project was to make polar sciences more accessible to any kind of audience in order to raise the public?s awareness for the sensitive polar ecosystem. In this context we had a special discussion on how to deal with children as a very open-minded and inquiring target audience. Therefore we also worked with teachers to develop a classroom product, and developed ideas and practices relating to ease of preparation, ease of use, and ease of sharing. In accordance with the IPY Data Policy the outcomes and presentations will be available through the Polar Data catalogue. Thereby an easy way of documentation sharing will be guaranteed and other scientists can benefit from this initiative.
