Educators and explorers Will Steger, John Stetson, Elizabeth Andre and Abby Fenton will join four Inuit hunters on a 1200-mile,four-month-long dogsled expedition across the Canadian Arctic's Baffin Island.

The expedition will travel with four Inuit dog teams over traditional hunting paths, up frozen rivers, through steep-sidedfjords, over glaciers and ice caps, and across the sea ice to reach some of the most remote Inuit villages of the world.

Each day, the team will use innovative technologies to post videos, images, sounds and texts on the globalwarming101 website, and communicate with online participants around the world. Students and teachers will integrate the educational curriculum components developed by the team into their coursework, and will participate in the expedition through research and forum discussion. During the week-long visits to each Inuit village, the team will listen to and document the Inuit's experience with climate change.

These collected images, sounds and stories will illustrate the dramatic climate-related changes happening in the Arctic: starving polar bears, retreating pack ice, melting glaciers, disrupted hunting and traveling, and the unraveling of a traditional way of life.
