Kicking off on 1 May, the Encounter Edu team will go live from the UK Arctic Research Station, to bring AXA XL Arctic Live to thousands of students globally.
This year, the team will be monitoring and measuring the impact of ocean microplastics and ocean acidification.
Teachers will be able to share this ongoing field work by researchers from the University of Exeter and Plymouth Marine Laboratory with their primary and secondary students through the age differentiated broadcasts.
Connecting online, students will be able to participate in interviews with experts, submit questions for the Ask-Me-Anything (AMA), and following our live investigations directly from the international research centre on Svalbard. Register here
