Podcast Journal

Arctic Impressions 03.06.2008

Arctic Impressions is the audio journal of Dorian Janney, a middle school teacher from Rockville, Maryland. Dorian joined our Sun-Earth Day team in Barrow, Alaska, for the 4th polar conference called, "Polar Gateways Arctic Circle Sunrise 2008'. She joined in on a variety of educational activities including school visits, cultural excursions, webcasts and podcasts. She also kept a written journal of her entire experience complete with descriptive text and imagery that she emailed back to her students in Maryland at the end of each day.

We asked Dorian if she would share her impressions of the Arctic with you. She graciously agreed. During our next four podcasts you will hear from the author her self, Dorian Janney, as she reads to you directly from her journal. We've also included a variety of interviews with scientists and residents of Barrow as conducted by student reporter, Cara Mayo.
