Friday, October 12, 2018
University of Rhode Island
Graduate School of Oceanography

Registration is now open to participate in the Arctic Researchers and Informal Science Education (ARISE) Workshop, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. This workshop is for Arctic researchers (principal investigators) and informal science education professionals and will be held October 10-12, 2018 on the campus of the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography.

Costs for travel, meals, and hotel accommodations associated with the workshop will be covered in full for the first 42 registered participants. Workshop and registration information can be found here.

ARISE Workshop goals are to 1.) provide pathways for broadening the impacts of NSF-funded Arctic research and assist principal investigators in disseminating the results of their research and 2.) increase the informal science education community’s access to and engagement with Arctic scientists. Both of these goals are intended to enhance the public’s learning experiences related to the Arctic environment and NSF-funded research.
