Pacifica spoke with Nichole Falkowski's 5th graders (and two other classes of 5th graders) at Westview Elementary in Northglenn, CO. She was accompanied by her sister, Aleah Sommers, a PhD candidate studying the melting of Greenland's ice sheet (link). Together they described how glaciers form, how they flow, and why they matter to people. They also showed pictures and answered questions about field work on glaciers. The sisters like to refer themselves as "polar opposites" (i.e. Pacifica's site is in Antarctica and Aleah's is in Greenland(Arctic))
While outdoors on Ob Hill Pacifica skyped with Tanque Verde Elementary School in Tucson, AZ. She talked to Svea Anderson's class- and the rest of the 4th grade- about our research on cryoconite holes, and answered questions about what it was like to camp in a tent in Antarctica.
