Just passing on news from the Polar Husky team. Make sure you sign up for the next round of this.
It is hard to believe that we are in the last few days of fall – The Polar Huskies are rolling in the snow with grins on their faces and it sure looks and feels like winter here in Minnesota. But officially the Winter Solstice occurs this Sunday.
We’ve been hard at work at both Education and Expedition Basecamp preparing for the upcoming GoNorth! 2009 adventure learning program. To that end, we have some information and updates that we would like to share with you. The biggest news is that we will be taking our adventure to Nunavut, Canada in 2009 and then to Greenland in 2010. A howl of applause to our sponsors and in particular the Best Buy Children’s Foundation and the National Science Foundation for supporting the ‘swap’ of the expedition location.
With the change in location, so is there a change in the direction for both the curriculum and the website. All summer and into this fall we have been hard at work on the curriculum and content for the website to accompany the program. Because content is location-specific, this county change for 2009 has resulted in a content shift as well. We are working around the clock to make the necessary changes, however we regret to inform you that we will not have the 2009 Curriculum & Activity Guide ready for you before the New Year. At this point in time we cannot give you a final date, but please know we are working hard. As soon as we have information we will broadcast an alert to bring you the most up-to-date news.
From all of us at GoNorth!, both two and four-legged alike, we hope you have a Happy Howling Holiday. Think Snow!
