About APECS

IPY-OSC Francisco Fernandoy-46
APECS is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. Our aims are to stimulate interdisciplinary and international research collaborations, and develop effective future leaders in polar research, education and outreach. We seek to achieve these aims by:
  • Facilitating international and interdisciplinary networking to share ideas and experiences and to develop new research directions and collaborations;
  • Providing opportunities for professional career development; and
  • Promoting education and outreach as an integral component of polar research and to stimulate future generations of polar researchers.

Arctic Research Consortium of the United States

Sarah Crowley currently works as an education project manager for the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States in Fairbanks, AK. She manages PolarTREC, a teacher-researcher experience program via a grant from the National Science Foundation. With partners such as UA-Fairbanks, Alaska Geographic and the National Park Service, Sarah develops and implements teacher trainings on climate change and polar science for online platforms and in-­field experiences. Most recently she has worked tirelessly with partners such as APECS to build Polar Educators International; a professional network for those who educate in, for, and about the polar regions.

Through her years teaching environmental education, Sarah developed a passion for polar science and facilitating meaningful nature/science education experiences for her students and other teachers. Her undergraduate work earned her a BA in Geography in 2004, with a minor in Global Studies. In 2010 she received her M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction for Science Education and a Graduate Certificate in Education, Environment, and Community from the University of Washington-Seattle.
