Early career scientists at the Inner Space Center.

Twenty-two undergraduate and graduate students will each sail on the 22-day Northwest Passage Project expedition. They will receive science content instruction as the ship is underway and work alongside ocean scientists as they conduct Arctic research related to the changing Arctic environment. The students will also contribute to live broadcasts from the sea.

A cohort of 12 high school students will virtually participate in the expedition through the Inner Space Center. These students will serve as ambassadors for the project in their respective high schools.
