Antarctica Virtual Program (Girl Scout Event)
When: Wednesday, January 15, 2020, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Z.J. Loussac Public Library
: Moose Meeting Room
Are you working on your Polar Patch of the Month? Are you curious weather it is colder now in Alaska or Antarctica? Do you have questions for a scientist living and working on the other side of the globe? This program is for you!
This virtual program will connect girls with scientists at the McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Coming to us live from their outdoor communications station, Antarctica scientists will share with girls what living and working in Antarctica is like. Girls will have the chance to ask questions after their presentation.
Locations for the event: Due to limited internet connectivity at the McMurdo Station, we need to limit the number of computers we connect from. Locations have been confirmed for Anchorage and Wasilla. More locations are in the works.
Anchorage: Loussac Library: Moose Room
Mat-Su: Wasilla Public Library
Other Locations: I am working to confirm other locations and will work with you to find a location in your community. Please register and a program team member will reach out to you to confirm a location.
Thank you to Alyeska Pipeline for helping to sponsor this event.
