The Cryospheric Connection to Understanding Climate Change curriculum was designed and reviewed in collaboration with scientists from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute as well as Alaskan Native Elders.

Permafrost researchers and Alaska Native Elders contributed observations and data, videos, lectures, and oversight to Cryospheric Connection. They served as mentors to rural Alaska Native students participating in a Climate Literacy Program and participated in comprehensive curriculum review.
