SNOW, ICE and science are among Nicole Collier’s loves.

Nicole Collier wants your help to compete in the Fjällräven Polar, a 300-kilometer amateur dog-sled race across the Arctic North, from Norway into Sweden.

The earth science and biology teacher at Marlborough School is competing to win the most online votes by Thurs., Dec. 14, and anyone can vote.

Collier also has worked as a park ranger in the Alaskan bush, as a research assistant for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and as a field scientist on Mt. Rainier. Last year, she also partook in a citizen science investigation of geology and glaciology in Svalbard, Norway. The year before, she participated in an expedition to Arctic Canada and Greenland as a Young Explorer in the Explorers Club.

It’s obvious that Collier loves snow, ice and science. She says she also loves being a science teacher and showing her students what an active female scientist looks like.
