Polar research opportunity for high school students

Dear high school students,

Do you want hands-on research experience in Greenland? Do you want to learn about rapidly changing polar systems and see it with your own eyes? Do you want to learn the benefits of large, cooperative international research programs and learn about cultures from other nations? Well, now is your chance!  The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) selects 5 US high school students per year (along with other students from Greenland and Denmark) to spend part of their summers working with researchers in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. What a fantastic way to spend 3 weeks of your summer!

To learn more about the program and to apply (APPLICATIONS ARE DUE ON JANUARY 31, 2014), visit: http://www.arcus.org/jsep.

    Hey, this is Maddie! My chemistry teacher told me about this and I thought that it was very interesting! I talked with my dad and he is going to let me apply!
