Polar Science

A team of scientists are leaving for Antarctica and will be sending data back to those schools that have signed up to participate. This collaboration is brought to you free of charge by the McMaster University YES I Can! Science Project in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Biology Department of Colorado State University.

The Ice Team led by Dr. Shane B. Kanatous (other members: Dr. Stephen J. Trumble, Dr. Shawn R. Noren, Jay W. Davis, and Linnea Pearson) will be performing the field research, analysis and collecting samples from McMurdo Station in Antarctica. The Lab Team, led by Dr. Thomas Hawke (other members: Peter Jaksa, Jesse Wolfstadt, and Sophia Kapchinsky), will be performing experiments and analyzing samples in his lab at York University in Toronto. The Teams will be in constant communication via email and web logs (that you will get to look in on!).

If you missed signing up for 2006...look forward to next years project. Although it might not be too late to sign-up....
