Antarctica Month Festival 2021 – get involved!
- This event has passed.
Calling all teachers, educators and students of all ages! The Antarctica Month Festival launches today (1 December), and will run throughout December, to celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty on 1 December 1959.
Hosted by the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC), a program of the US and UK, the Antarctica Month Festival celebrates Antarctic science and invites students ages 5 and up to learn about the frozen continent of Antarctica and the mighty Thwaites Glacier through a series of online activities and presentations.
- ‘Ask a scientist’ your burning questions about Antarctica. Learn what it’s like to work and live on the icy continent from the international team of ITGC scientists, including scientists from British Antarctic Survey (BAS).
- Build a model of Thwaites Glacier to see the glacier and ice shelf dynamics in action.
- View an amazing collection of educational talks from scientists, engineers and support staff.
- Explore educational websites Thwaites-Explorer and Discovering Antarctica.
