This session is your chance to ask Ellie Mackay about her extensive experience as a science communicator, extreme environment filmmaker and field producer.
Submit your students’ questions in advance to increase their chance of being answered, or you can submit them live.
Preparing for this session is a great opportunity to develop your students' questioning skills. Use the selection of guides and advice in the Arctic Live Professional Development collection to support this process. Think of a variety of questions, especially open-ended questions and questions that you couldn’t just find the answer to using a search engine.
1. Introduction (5 mins)
The session will start with an introduction by Jamie to Ellie Mackay who will explain a little about her role at the UK Arctic Research Station. Jamie will also give a shout-out to any schools that registered, so listen out for your school.
2. Pre-submitted questions (10 mins)
Jamie will then conduct a structured interview using questions which have been submitted by schools in advance.
3. Live questions (30 mins)
Ellie and Jamie will then attempt to answer as many of the pre-submitted and live chat questions from schools as possible.
