Live Events

Skype live-links

During 7-16 March there were 115 one-to-one Skype live-links with the Arctic Live team. Around 6,000 students globally connected via Skype with members of the expedition team on Svalbard and polar researchers and explorers based in the UK and Norway.

The enthusiasm was huge, as kids felt inspired to explore and understand more of this unique environment and even to become future explorers.

An experience that will stick with me for the rest of my life, literally!” said in a handwritten note Katerina Giannopolou from Avgoulea Linardatou Private School in Athens, Greece.
