Abstract

The Polar Literacy Initiative is striving to bring polar research to primary school aged learners. Working with polar researchers and their data sets, the Polar Literacy team created a number of lesson plans, activities, videos and interactives to provide the opportunity for students to explore field collected data and interact with polar researchers. The materials were tested with over 500 learners in several states, primarily during the COVID-19 restrictions, impacting the material development and implementation strategies.
