Would you like the chance to connect your class with an expedition in the Arctic?

The Arctic is one of the most challenging environments on the planet, a frozen wilderness that many scientists believe holds the key to the future of the planet.

“On a still day the air is a cloud of fairy dust, like walking through a cloud of speckled diamonds,” recalls ex-teacher and explorer, Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop.

Jamie, who was part of both the Catlin Arctic Survey team in 2011 and the Catlin Frozen Oceans expedition in 2014 is returning to the Arctic to share not only the spectacular beauty of this unique ecosystem with thousands of young people across the UK, but to also connect them with the polar scientists that work in such an extreme environment.

From 4 to 15 May Digital Explorer, in partnership with Catlin Ocean Education and the British Antarctic Survey, is inviting students to connect and interact live via satellite with Jamie or a member the expedition team based at the UK Arctic Research Station on Svalbard.
