Podcasts, blogs, vlogs, and more...
have been publishing a series of video and audio podcasts throughout IPY, now totalling more than 30 in all. Scientists and Alaskan Natives speak for themselves in blogs, accompanied by images of sea, ice, land, animals and people.
An invitation to get active and interactive...
Many of our videos of penguins and polar bears, glaciers and ice-breakers, plus NASA images and animations of the Poles from space are accessible for download, and we'll be inviting students young and old to mash-up and re-mix the videos to compete in the POLAR-PALOOZA podcast contest, with entries judged on scientific accuracy as well as production values.
The POLAR-PALOOZA Portal
And, of course, we'll link to the best IPY sites and resources, both US and international, along with hands-on activities for school, home or science center, and other podcasts, wikis, and projects.
POLAR-PALOOZA is made possible by support from the National Science Foundation, and by NASA's Science Mission Directorate, and is an official IPY activity. Additional support comes from Apple Computer, ASTC, and science centers and natural history museums across America. POLAR-PALOOZA is produced by PASSPORT TO KNOWLEDGE, P2K, which is solely responsible for its content.
