British Antarctic Survey Visits HAB

Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey came and spoke to us recently about their work on climate in Antarctica.

The guests spoke in depth about their jobs as part of the British Antarctic Survey, the national polar research institute. The British Antarctic Survey has two purposes: they conduct polar science to help us better understand global issues, like the melting polar ice caps, and they provide an active presence in the Antarctic on behalf of the UK. 

Nora, Year 9, writes... 

We entered the room and found areas to sit. The speakers began to introduce themselves and explain the details of their job. They both worked in Antarctica. However, one of them studied satellite data and the other studied ice cores

They spoke to us about their jobs and how they got into them. After, some people asked questions and the scientists brought out the clothing usually worn by researchers in Antarctica. Some people, including me, were able to try on the clothing. I got to wear the coat and it was extremely large and warm. After that, we explored different clothing and equipment used by the scientists.

Kai, Year 9, writes...

The workshop was extremely interesting and educational! I enjoyed learning about the satellite data and history of the ice cores. On top of that, watching people put on clothing baffled me. There were so many layers, and the coat was very puffy and large, and they had very heavy and thick boots. 

Overall my favourite part was finding out that the largest land animal was in fact a small bug! In conclusion the experience was very exciting and we enjoyed it very much!
