Schools on Tundra
Schools on Tundra will be hosted at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre (CNSC), a hive of scientific activity located outside of Churchill, MB Canada. Here, scientists are trying to increase our understanding of the changes that the sub-arctic is experiencing due to global climate change.
Students and teachers participating in the Schools on Tundra program will have the unique opportunity to conduct authentic field research in the sub-arctic, engage with scientists working out of the CNSC and participate in lectures and workshops. Participants will also experience the diverse geology, biodiversity, cultural history, and wild beauty that the area around Churchill offers.
Tentative Research Areas Include:
- Disturbance ecology and environmental changes affecting permafrost landforms
- Polar biology and habitat
- Marine mammals.
- Freshwater systems in the sub-arctic
- Aurora Borealis
