The two ladies will spend their second winter in the remote wilderness to serve as citizen scientists to build data collections for UNIS, the Norwegian Polar Institute, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration and BCIT: British Columbia Institute of Technology.

They will also engage students and teachers from around the world with live video hangouts 🙂
