The least visited corners of our globe may be among the most fascinating.

Students will learn about The Arctic and the Antarctic. They will learn about the animals found in these environments, as well as relevant oceanic and atmospheric science.
With a bachelor's in Environmental Science & Policy from Florida State University, A certificate degree in Urban & Regional Planning, and a minor in Geology, I have studied oceanography, climate science, and marine biology extensively. The polar regions and the whales who inhabit these regions are areas of my academic interest.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners are assessed by informal assessment. Students who show understanding of the course content, remain engaged, participate in class discussions, and ask questions will be assessed to have successfully completed the course. If your learner has special assessment requirements please reach out before the start of the course. We are happy to work with the needs of parents, organizers, charter schools, and homeschooling programs.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
