High School Student Research in the Arctic this Summer

OK, so I’m a bit jealous that I’m not a high school student right now, but if you know of some 🙂 there is a great opportunity for them to travel to Greenland this summer to participate in Arctic research.  The National Science Foundation sponsors a program that includes high school students from the US, Denmark, and Greenland.  Is this your idea of a few weeks of summer?

If so, here’s the link for the application, which is due Feb. 17, 2012:

High school students will work with scientists and teachers for two-three weeks on field tests of the Greenland Ice Sheet.  They will experience life in the research zone, and have the chance to work on their own research, which is supported by staff there.  If you like the cold, and a lot of adventure, (oh yeah, and you’re a high school student…see above comment about wishing I was…) it’s the perfect summer “field” trip!
