Antarctica – cool science in action

November 14, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until November 20, 2018

In November, 2018 go virtually to a place that has fascinated explorers and scientists for over 100 years; Antarctica.

Unlike early adventurers you won’t be sailing there. You will fly on a C17 Globemaster landing on glacial ice with an air temperature of about -20°C.

Your friends on this trip are Antarctic scientists and other experts. You will all be staying together at New Zealand’s Scott Base. You will join them for meals in the Scott Base dining room. You will sit in on morning meetings to plan the day’s activity. You will complete a survival training course before going out in the field. Then you will travel across the ice to do some cool science, all recorded online with lots of videos and images plus live web conferences with scientists on “The Ice”.
