KS3 Antarctica - Science Teachers in the Freezer

Description

Discover out why the continent of Antarctica is so good for scientific research as we examine two experiments carried out by British school teachers on a recent expedition to the polar region.

One experiment looks at the effects of cold on the human body, and how our bodies change and adapt to lowering temperatures. The other experiment follows the team of teachers as they aim to find the first lichens in the Ellsworth Mountain region of Antarctica.

During the entire process, we gain an insight into how to conduct a proper, rigorous scientific experiment from start to finish. We see how important it is to record data accurately, and how difficult it can be to conduct proper science in a harsh environment such as Antarctica.
