We are enrolled in a virtual field trip to Antarctica from 3-7 November.
Here is the field trip plan:
|Monday 3 November||Jump aboard the US Airforce C17 Globemaster aircraft in Christchurch and begin your journey to the great southern continent of Antarctica. Complete your Antarctic Field Training so you are ready and equipped to safely work with scientists out on the sea ice.|
|Wednesday 5 November|
|Thursday 6 November|
|Friday 7 November|
Each day Nicola will run a workshop looking at video diary entries and we will be taking notes and writing about it on our blog. We will be able to ask questions to experts who are working in Antarctica.
On that note, Eleanor's dad is working over there at the moment!
I have attached a photo of our field camp site from last year at Cape Evans (the site of Scott's 1909 Hutt, you can see it in the foreground of the photo). My sleeping tent was the little triangular yellow one on the very left hand side of the photo.
I will send some photos to if you like when we get back at the end of November.
Say hi to Ellen for me!
