IPY is encouraging schools and science centers worldwide to organize demonstrations and experiments with ice for the March 1 project launch. Participants in the recent IGLO RAP in Miami discussed several possible ice activities for implementation by science center visitors. A selection of the best will be posted here soon. Since the Paris webcast will include some of these ice experiments, it will be possible to watch the screen and conduct your own activities at the same time. Please let us know whether your institution will be watching or participating, and send us pictures after the event so that we can include a summary here.

IGLO @ COP15
On December 14 at 8:15AM EST, ASTC will partner with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to host an international web cast from the US Center in Copenhagen. Students at science centers from around the world will be joined by a panel of experts, including the Deputy Chair of the IPCC, the Communications Director of NOAA’s Climate Program office, and a scientific team from France.
Students will present their experiences with Clim’City, an interactive climate change game developed by Cap-Sciences, Bordeaux, France. Experts on the panel will comment on the students’ results and place them in the context of the COP15 negotiations.
You can watch the event live in your science center. If you have questions or would like more information, email email@example.com.
