Abstract

This paper describes how, in conjunction with the Teachers Experiencing the Arctic and Antarctic (TEA) program administered by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), a beginning has been made in bringing permafrost research to the attention of a wider audience. Since their expeditions, the teachers have shared their experiences with their classrooms and communities in several ways, including public lectures and the Internet (TEA web site, http://tea.rice.edu). This experience may heighten public awareness of permafrost and contribute to it becoming a useful part of the secondary curriculum
