Planning an Antarctic Expedition
This resource is part of the Polar Explorer Resource Collection https://www.stem.org.uk/polar-explorer-educational-resources.
Within this resource, learners will work in groups of four, use their mathematical skills and scientific knowledge to help plan for an expedition to the Antarctic in 3 sessions. They will consider the appropriate clothing, food and other essential equipment they will need to take with them. Learners will also use thermometers/data loggers to investigate layering and use weighing scales to ensure the food they carry isn’t too heavy. They will then consider the calorie intake needed to survive in extreme conditions and plan their expedition whilst working to a strict budget.
