FREE - Exploring the Arctic | STEM clubs / Ages 7-14

This lesson is a perfect introduction to the Arctic. It is hosted by Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop who has visited the Arctic seven times (and Antarctica once). He will share some highlights of work and life in the frozen north. Jamie will then work through the ocean and climate activity and explain why changes in the Arctic Ocean critical for climate change. There is also an opportunity to look at aspects of working scientifically. The last section of the lesson will be a chance for students to have their Arctic questions answered.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AXA Arctic Live 2021 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.

It really was an incredible opportunity and we felt really privileged to take part. All the supporting materials on the website were amongst the best I have used and gave us so many ideas for activities in the classroom."

It was so much better than watching a video or reading a book, because it was live and the information was up to date."
