Solving Polar Bear Issues Due to Melting Sea Ice with NASA Content and ArcGIS
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Beth Szijarto, Lori Schlueter
An educational grant was awarded from NASA to develop and execute educational geospatial instruction. This has allowed schools to help solve polar bear issues due to melting sea ice by using NASA content and ArcGIS. Students researched this problem by using NASA content and subject matter experts. While using ArcGIS, students were able to examine polar bear populations, sea ice, and temperatures. Students were able to provide a solution for relocation or product hunting location placements.
