The icePod Project Team uses Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) daily to: plan and implement their study of ice in the polar regions; develop new instruments to collect measurements of changing ice; and operate, navigate and fly their LC130 aircraft. Effectively completing their jobs requires STEM. Click on the images below to read about some of the different team members to begin this activity.
