Schools & Education

Engaging young people in science is important to British Antarctic Survey.  Our award-winning educational resources for teachers and students are curriculum-relevant and developed in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office Polar Regions Department. Our scientists and support staff visit schools within a 50-mile radius of Cambridge, and get involved in online schools talks about polar science and living and working in the world’s last great wilderness.
