Polar Pasts and Present Climate

Wednesday, June 3
1:00pm Central / 2:00pm Eastern

The Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre has partnered with Code To Learn to put together a nation-wide opportunity to discuss climate change, and how the past can teach about the future. Yukon’s palaeontologist Grant Zazula, palaeontologist Jaelyn Eberle and Smithsonian director/palaeontologist Kirk Johnson were just a few of the scientists featured in the NOVA documentary Polar Extremes, and we have convinced them to come into your classroom, virtually, for a Q&A with your students. We have worked hard to create this cool opportunity with the hopes of giving your students an end-of-year activity that they won’t soon forget! Check out the YouTube Trailer (https://bit.ly/PEtrailer) or watch the whole feature film before this session: POLAR EXTREMES|NOVA|PBS on Facebook. (https://bit.ly/c2lpolarextremes)
