FREE - How to survive in the Arctic with Nick Cox (AM)

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, AXA Arctic Live 2020 live lessons will be delivered as a virtual event, with speakers joining from where they are, rather than from the UK's Arctic Research Station.

This live lesson broadcast from the Arctic explores what it is like to live above the Arctic Circle. Arctic research station leader Nick Cox will answer questions about his work at the UK's Arctic Research Station. Submit your students’ questions in advance to increase their chance of being answered, or you can submit them live.
