In April 2002, ARCUS held our first "virtual field trip" outside of Barrow, Alaska. This "virtual field trip" focused on geosciences research and examined the arctic climate, pack ice and climate change. Our Arctic Alive teacher, Patrick Lovely, served as a liaison and guide, negotiating the sometimes friendly and occasionaly treacherous pack ice. This expedition took students "virtually" out on the sea ice to work with the researchers. Patrick also met and talked to elders and wildlife biologists to gain their perspectives on climate change.

The 2002 trip was piloted in selected Alaskan middle schools. Program content aligns with Alaska Content Standards and complements various state and federal school reform initiatives.

All the program content (curriculum, audio conference calls, etc.) has been archived and is available for teachers to use as a resource in their classrooms.
