Past Field Programs
2005 Field Program summary
The 2005 Schools on Board Field Program experienced a very successful year on-board Leg 2 of ArcticNet. Participants were selected by their schools to represent them and their community on-board this very unique Arctic research experience. The group boarded the ship at 11:30am on October 14th. They participated in the activities associated with a VIP tour of the CCGS Amundsen. These activities included a ship tour, an introduction of our group to the VIP delegates and a presentation about ArcticNet. We set sail on the evening of the 14th and immediately became integrated in the activities of ArcticNet science teams the following day. The program included science lectures, lab activities and fieldwork. In addition to hands-on research activities the program included information and sessions on various aspects of Canada’s North, including local knowledge, art, culture, history, and politics.
Details of the on-board program are available on the 2005 program itinerary. Support of local sponsors made this experience possible for our students and teachers.
