apecs italy logoAPECS Italy is proud to support the NET project, in which ten students from the Istituto Tecnico Industriale Statale “Max Planck” high school in Treviso (Italy) become involved in scientific research about climate change in the Arctic environment. The purpose of the project is to expose students to the various issues and techniques involved in climate change research at the poles, and how knowledge gained from polar research on climate change can inform climate change decisions back home in Italy. Following the field portion of the work, the students will gain experience in science communication and outreach by preparing presentations of their experience that will be shared with the public. In order to secure the last funding needed to support this project, NET is sponsoring a crowdfunding campaign, more information about which can be found at the following website (in Italian)
