Polar Connections

Last week, K-2 students at Longmont Estates were able to participate in a hands-on STEM CU Discovery class about Polar Connections.  Students learned about polar wildlife, climate, geography, and what it's like to live in that extreme environment.  They were given the opportunity to compare rocks from Antarctica and Colorado, learn about insulation through experiments with ice, and test out different materials and how they hold up in the wind.  We all learned that while it may be cold here in the winter, it's nothing like the extreme environments on our planet.
