Want to be part of the largest Arctic Expedition ever?
Dreaming of bringing polar and climate sciences actively into classrooms?
Then this opportunity might be of interest for you.
The MOSAiC Education team seeks applications from German teachers (grades 5-13) to participate in the first leg of the MOSAiC expedition, joining the science team on the Russian icebreaker RV Akademik Fedorov. RV Fedorov will accompany RV Polarstern in identifying the ice floe in which RV Polarstern will be frozen and setting up all measuring stations.
The successful candidate will join the expedition from September 20 to October 26, 2019 (ship-time, excluding traveling days). Port of exit and entry is Tromsø, Norway. Travels have to be arranged and paid by the participant.
Two MOSAiC Educators will be selected. They will take part in lectures of the MOSAiC School offered to 20 Master and PhD students at the same time.
It is expected that the teacher
• develop educational materials that can be widely used in German school
• give lectures on teaching methods and how to communicate science in classroom activities
• be an active participant on the ship
• serve as a MOSAiC “ambassador” after the expedition.

Submission deadline for applications is May 31, 2019.
