Teachers Experiencing Antarctica and the Arctic
TEA is a former (until 2005) program for K-12 teachers to participate in a polar expedition. The TEA teacher worked closely with scientists, participated in cutting-edge research, and was immersed in the process of science. Enveloping this field experience was a diversity of professional development opportunities through which TEA teachers increased content knowledge, enhanced teaching skills, transferred the experience to the classroom, assumed leadership roles, and collaborated with a network of researchers and education colleagues. The website still contains useful links and articles for any teacher interested in polar sciences
