This week was #ScienceLiteracyWeek in Canada, and as part of the campaign, the Arctic Relations blog asked Janice McDonnell, Ocean Data Labs Project PI, to share her thoughts on developing and Using the Polar Literacy Principles in Science Communication. We encourage you to check out her thoughts on the Arctic Relations website.

And if you are interested in learning more about our Polar Literacy project, which like Data Labs is also based at Rutgers University, we encourage you to check out the Polar Literacy website, including the list of Polar Literacy Principles that were developed to help Arctic and Antarctic scientists with their communications, outreach and educational efforts.
