Two cohorts, each consisting of 18 students (six high school students, nine undergraduate students, and three graduate students) will each sail on board the SSV Oliver Hazard Perry for 2.5-week legs of the Northwest Passage Project. They will receive science content instruction as the ship is underway, gain navigation and sailing skills, work alongside ocean scientists as they conduct Arctic research, and contribute to live broadcasts from the sea.
The first cohort of 18 students will sail from Pond Inlet in Nunavut. This first leg will end in Resolute Bay, where the students sailing on leg two will depart. Leg two will end in Cambridge Bay.
