ARISE Workshop Arctic Researchers and Informal Science Education Workshop

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is sponsoring an interactive 2.5-day workshop, the Arctic Researchers and Informal Science Education (ARISE) Workshop, for Arctic researchers (principal investigators) and informal science education professionals to be held October 10-12, 2018 on the campus of the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography.

ARISE Workshop goals are to:
1. provide pathways for broadening the impacts of NSF-funded Arctic research and assist principal investigators in disseminating the results of their research and
2. increase the informal science education community’s access to and engagement with Arctic scientists.
Both of these goals are intended to enhance the public’s learning experiences related to the Arctic environment and NSF-funded research.

Registration for the ARISE Workshop is now open.  Use this link to access, complete, and submit your registration.  

Meals during the workshop will be covered by NSF funding for all participants. If you require travel support (to include airfare and lodging; not to include mileage, airport parking, or car rentals), please indicate so on the registration form. Funding for 42 workshop participants is available and requests for support will be accepted in the order in which they are received. Following a request for support, a member of the workshop planning committee will be in contact.

More information about the ARISE Workshop will be posted to this webpage. If you should have any questions, please contact Andrea Gingras,
