Arctic Live 2015

4 May 2015 - 15 May 2015

For a second year, the event brought this extreme environment closer to classrooms from three continents through 67 live virtual trips, daily news from the Arctic and 360-degree multimedia. Thousands of students linked up live with polar scientists that have worked in the Arctic.

This direct access to this fast-changing environment was meant to inspire and ignite young people’s curiosity for science and exploration. The event was featured on NBC Weekend Today and The Guardian, reaching an estimated viewership of almost 10 million globally.
