ArcticNet and Live It announce education series
By Alexa Reedman
ArcticNet is pleased to announce our expanded partnership with LIVE IT Earth (“Live It”). Live It has supported ArcticNet’s annual meetings for the past three years and developed professional videos for the Network’s projects.
Together, ArcticNet and Live It are creating an Arctic education series for grades K-12. This series will focus on different science across our Network, developed into story-rich learning experiences that pair real-world learning with interactive technology. This starts with the Food Web Series, starring Beluga whales, which will be released on November 26.
In the time of COVID-19, many of us are searching for different ways to engage our nation’s children in exciting learning experiences. Through this partnership, we are able to engage thousands of children across our country on the importance and excitement of environmental Arctic science with an inclusive lens. This is a fantastic opportunity for ArcticNet to support not only the next generation of Arctic scientists, but the generation after as well.
