AXA Arctic Live returns for 2021 with four live lessons designed for students at key stage 3 (ages 11-14). From 7 to 17 June 2021, explore the science and geography of the frozen north and meet some of the people who work in this fast-changing environment.
From food webs to survival, and the impact of carbon emissions to sea level rise, there is something for everyone.
In this live lesson, we investigate some of the animals that live in the Arctic and how they are connected through food webs. As part of the lesson, students will be guided through an Arctic food web activity.
Join Arctic station manager, Nick Cox, as he shares his experience of over 40 years working in the polar regions. Pick up survival tips and insights into these remote and inhospitable environments and maybe plan your own journeys into the cold.
What happens if the ice in the Arctic melts and how might that affect lives around the world? Does it matter what type of ice melts? Find out answers to these questions and more.
With increased carbon emissions in the atmosphere, changes are also happening in the ocean, and none faster than the Arctic Ocean. Learn about climate change's 'evil twin sister' and how it is affecting the frozen ocean.
