New ice monitoring project engages kids to become community scientists

A new community-based ice monitoring project lead by WERC research faculty Christopher Arp gets young kids involved in science.

"Ice provides a perfect place to learn about basic physics and math that's relevant to winter safety and climate change. Plus data that kids collect can be quite helpful for our science!" says Arp.

As part of the Fresh Eyes on Ice project, which kicked off their program on March 20, 2019, fourth-graders from Anne Wien Elementary School in Fairbanks measured ice and explored the surrounding ecosystem on Noyes Slough. 

The Fresh Eyes on Ice project is funded by the National Science Foundation.
