Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Polar Week logo2 01International Polar Week is an opportunity for APECS and its members to promote Polar science. APECS uses this opportunity to plan and develop Polar science related activities alongside teachers, educators and those interested in polar education for the equinoxes of each year. The equinoxes in March and September are the only time when everywhere on earth the day length is 12 hours, a perfect opportunity to celebrate the poles on a global scale!

The International Polar Week Fall 2016 will be from 19 - 25 September 2016! We want to celebrate by focusing on the science being conducted in the Arctic and Antarctic.
