Growing the next generation of explorers

Antarctica is unlike any other place on Earth. Its awesome landscape, intriguing wildlife and environmental significance is still as interesting today as it was to the first great Antarctic explorers.

We’re helping to educate and inspire the next generation of explorers with a range of education programmes that have been carefully designed to suit the interests and learning needs of the modern student.
