An introduction to the Ice Balloons activity, in which learners explore globes of frozen water and learn how to ask and then answer 'investigable' questions. A detailed demonstration of how to do the Ice Balloons activity, including a discussion of materials needed and strategies for getting learners to ask and then investigate questions about what they are seeing. The science and pedagogy behind this activity, including a discussion of concepts such as density, temperature, thermal conductivity, center of mass, freezing point depression, heat capacity, and the characteristics of the states of water, water vapor, and ice. Also describes strategies for observing, asking questions, and then choosing a question to investigate further. Smashcast visited the Exploratorium on Saturday, April 18th, to work on the Ice Stories project and meet four Antarctic scientists. In this webcast from Antarctica, we meet up with Ted Scambos, a glaciologist from the University of Colorado and the National Snow and Ice Data Center. In this live webcast, we look deeper into the film 'Ice People.' We speak with noted geologists Allan Ashworth and Adam Lewis, and filmmaker Anne Aghion in our San Francisco studio. In this program Ice Stories crew member Ron Hipschman speaks with Paul Ponganis, who studies emperor penguins. We speak to Robin Bell from the AGAP (Antarctic Gamburtsev Province) expedition. This is the first systematic study of our planet's last unexplored mountain range. This webcast was our first this season, and we had some technical difficulties. Join us as we celebrate the beginning of summer in the Arctic and the long, cold winter in Antarctica. We'll connect live to two polar field sites: Summit Camp atop Greenland's vast ice sheet, where the sun will be shining 24 hours a day, and the South Pole Research Station, now in the middle of 6 months of darkness.
