North of Sixty Arctic Expedition Kickoff
McNamara Alumni Center
Special guest speakers, iPad mini giveaways, free food

 

Four Minnesota explorers, led by Dr. Aaron Doering from the Learning Technologies Media Lab, will undertake an expedition in April 2013, pulking across a stunning landscape of ice, rock, and sheer granite mountains in Nunavut, Canada. This adventure learning expedition is tied to the North of Sixty┬░ project, which is collaborating with schools from around the circumpolar Arctic to create a global tapestry of video stories that weave together both the ecological and cultural history of the Arctic. Please join us for this special kickoff event to celebrate the expedition, wish the explorers well, and examine the gear and technology they will use, as well as learn about the special documentary they'll be filming as they journey between two small communities across the Baffin Island.

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKERS


Dean Jean Quam from the College of Education and Human Development
Canadian Consul General Jamshed Merchant
Scott Johnson, Director of Teaching and Learning, Centennial School District
