Scientists in Action: Amazing Arachnids

Program Description

Much like reading tree rings, scientists can read the past (and even predict the future!) using ice cores cut and transported from extreme places such as Antarctica and Greenland. So, what is the ancient ice telling us? And how is this ice different from what we might pull out of a freezer? Join us as we go over 30 degrees below in this chilly visit to the National Science Foundation’s Ice Core Facility and get your questions ready for the experts who spend so much time in freezers. No hats or mittens needed in this sub-zero virtual field trip!
