Dartmouth Now reports on Dartmouth's contribution to the Joint Science Education Project (JSEP), a program jointly funded and led by the Government of Greenland and the US, that takes teens from the US, Greenland, and Denmark to Greenland to learn about science and undertake independent research projects.
