On Thursday, April 12, Discovery Education and the Siemens Foundation's Siemens STEM Academy will offer students and teachers a classroom expedition to explore the Arctic and Antarctic poles. Producers and scientists from Discovery Channel's series FROZEN PLANET will discuss their experiences filming the series in the polar regions and the work they are doing there to study the evolving landscape and ecosystems. They will discuss how their career enables them to make a positive impact on the environment every day, and what students can do to make a difference. Every student has the power to help protect our environment, from their local community to the polar regions. The free webinar will also feature an exclusive sneak peek of yet-to-be-aired episodes of the series.
