Digital Earth Academy: Ice

Program Description

Prepare for a trip to Himalayan glaciers, chilly fjords, and the frigid coast of Antarctica – no down coat required! Museum experts will guide you on a virtual journey through landscapes defined by snow and ice. Observe how frozen matter shapes our planet, compare icy regions across the globe, and examine the effects of a changing climate on Earth’s snow and ice. Your students will vote in interactive polls and guide our exploration with their questions! 

Digital Earth Academy is a new edition of the acclaimed Digital Earth series produced especially for students. Each month, we examine a different aspect of our dynamic planet: landscapes and landforms, human impacts and achievements, and much more. With stunning visualizations, interactive polls, and real-time Q&A, students will make observations, comparisons and connections and gain a new perspective of the Earth.
