Lindbergh Student Headed to Siberia with International Polaris Project

High school senior Peter Han will travel to the Siberian Arctic for a month to help advance scientific understanding of the changing Arctic on a project funded by the National Science Foundation.

The Renton School District announced that Lindbergh High School senior Peter Han has been selected to serve on a prestigious research expedition to the Siberian Arctic called The Polaris Project, funded by the National Science Foundation.

The Polaris Project is an innovative international collaboration among students, university professors, and scientists to train future leaders in arctic research and inform the public about the Arctic and global climate change. During the month-long Siberian expedition, Peter will conduct cutting-edge investigations that advance scientific understanding of the changing Arctic.

Peter credited the instruction he received from H.O.M.E. teacher Shawnna Hoggard, and Lindbergh High School teachers Oliver Jones (Advanced Placement biology) EunYi Bokm (mathematics), and guidance counselor Beth Lumsden in helping him learn advanced math and science skills necessary for a spot on the expedition.

Watch Peter’s video that he created as part of his application to serve on the expedition, which is also attached to this story.
