On June 8th, young students gathered at the Cook Student Center for a day of Polar Ice presentations. As a part of the Science Investigations (Sci-I) Project, students from grades 6-9 conduct investigations using real polar data. The project concludes with a poster session, where students present their finings amongst peers and scientists.
