Ice in Motion
Join us LIVE!
Updated: Nov 16, 2019
Want to hang out in the frozen Arctic with us…from the cozy comfort of your couch?
Your first chance is just TWO DAYS away!
We are hosting THREE live stream events from aboard the Sikuliaq this month, and we want you to tune in! In each live stream, we will talk with Oceanographer Dr. Jim Thomson about his work studying big waves and how they are impacting the new sea ice trying to grow this time of year. We will show you the really cool autonomous technology he is using to capture data and what life is like aboard a big ship in an Arctic winter. So, settle in with a hot cup of tea and your list of questions and jump aboard! You have three chances:
1. November 13 at 11:00 PST/2:00pm EST, 40 minutes: This live stream event is open to everyone, but targeted at students. So, TEACHERS! I’m talking to you. This is perfect for STEM classes grades 4-9, but will be entertaining and informative for all ages.
To tune in: Sign up on our Facebook event page to tell us you’re coming. Then, on November 13, simply follow this youtube link (you can also find it on Facebook and our website) to be LIVE with us on the ship.
2. November 19 at 10:00am PST/1:00pm EST, 30-45 minutes: This one is hosted through Exploring by the Seat of your Pants and is exclusively for classrooms. So again – TEACHERS! Head to their website to sign up. The first 6 classrooms to sign up get to ask questions live and on screen (and an unlimited number can tune in to watch it live).
To tune in: Head to their website for details.
3. November 20 at 11:00am PST/2:00pm EST, 40 minutes: This one is for EVERYONE! Join us from home or take a break at work for a sneak peek into what we’re up to on the Sikuliaq. This one will be driven by your curiosity – what do you want to know? You’ll be able to ask us questions in real time using the Live Chat feature.
To tune in: Sign up on our Facebook event page to tell us you’re coming. Then, on November 20, simply follow this youtube link (you can also find it on Facebook and our website) to be LIVE with us on the ship.
We are so excited to share this cool science with you!
