Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 11.28.02 AMDiscovery Education is in the tundra this week with four virtual field trips (VFTs) from Churchill, Manitoba. Webcasts are available free to educators, even if their schools aren't subscribers to DE Streaming. Polar Bears International will serve as hosts and all events can be found at their event page.

The VFTs are not only live but will also be archived and available on demand.

Register your class for the live showings and submit questions for the hosts to ask scientists in the middle of each broadcast.

Check out "Tundra Connections" from earlier today for a sample of the high quality learning experience available to students and educators or people who just love to learn.

Discovery Education also is providing its subscribers with additional polar bear and tundra resources to support the virtual field trips. Check out those here. You'll be transferred once you've logged in to DE Streaming.

Polar Bears International has also launched an iTunes U channel with great support resources to use in conjunction with the VFTs as well.
