I’m going to Antarctica!

April 18, 2009

Hello and welcome to my site!

After a rigorous selection centre over the Easter holidays, I have been selected to go on a science expedition to Antarctica in November 2010.  The expedition is organised by a charity called the Fuchs Foundation, who aim to raise the profile of science in schools and the exciting research that is being carried out in places like Antarctica and encourage more young people to study science.  I will be going with two guides and three other teachers from around the UK.  During our 6 week stay we will each be conducting a science project and camping in temperatures down to -40°C, man-hauling all our tents and equipment and possibly even climbing mountains that have never been climbed before.   To prepare for the expedition, we are also going on two training expeditions to Norway next year, bringing the total cost of the trip to around £35,000 per teacher!  I need to raise £14,000, so click on the fundraising page to see how you can help and watch this space for fundraising events coming up. Thank you for your support.
