Pilot program to let US high-school students experience Antarctic science at a Chilean station
Date:1/13/2014

rctic scientific research and exchanging cultural information.

The joint program will offer the U.S. and Chilean students the opportunity to work with Antarctic scientists and learn about subjects ranging from glaciology to ecology. The students also will give presentations about their own research, practice their language skills and visit research stations run by other countries on King George Island.

The U.S. participants will share their Antarctic expedition experiences as well as their research with their classmates in Wisconsin and other schoolchildren nationwide. Plans are also being made for the group to speak with U.S. Embassy staff and students at an international school in Santiago, Chile as they make their way home to the USA.

This is the 10th anniversary of the Chilean National Antarctic Institute's Antarctic School Fair and Expedition. The contest and expedition promote awareness and appreciation of Antarctica and scientific research in young people throughout Chile.
