The 13th annual Polar Science Weekend at Pacific Science Center on 2–4 March delighted more than 5700 visitors, as 130 volunteer scientists and students (including 30 from APL-UW) presented 20 hands-on activities — from: penguins to polar bears, sea ice to glaciers, wave tanks to seagliders — visitors learned the intricacies of polar science from the enthusiastic scientists who travel to the polar regions and conduct research there.

Polar Science Weekend is a partnership between Pacific Science Center and the University of Washington’s Polar Science Center and Applied Physics Laboratory. Stay tuned for PSW 2019!
