Event information

The EI LIVE K-12 channel features experts from across the Earth Institute presenting relevant sustainability content in 45-minute live sessions for K12 students and educators. During each EI K-12 session the NASA Education Program Specialist from NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies provides supplemental NASA education, content, platforms and resources relevant to the weekly topic for further exploration and discovery.

Ice Flows will be presented on Monday November 8 at 11:00 – 11:45AM ET.

DESCRIPTION: Ice flows like a fluid. This incredible fact explains why there is any water left in the oceans, controls the shape of the large sheets of ice near the Earth’s poles, and excites and confounds glaciologists trying to understand sea level rise. This talk will introduce ice flow and use high school math and physics to explain the shape of the ice sheets.

Presenter: Jonny Kingslake, Assistant Professor, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences

Target Audience: Grades 10-12 (and undergraduates)
