Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

  • The action ‘A Flag for Antarctica!’ inspired children from local organizations to create a flag for Antarctica! The flags traveled to Antarctica with our network of polar early career researchers, and we then sent the local organization a picture of the flag in the Icy Continent.
  • The booklet “Celebrating Antarctica” was distributed to local schools and libraries. This colourful education resource is a free download, and it has been translated in many (many!) different languages.
  • ‘Ask an Expert’ webinar: we organized two public webinars on December 5th 2018, one in Englisch one in Spanish. These were aimed to engage high school students with Antarctic research, to ask questions to polar early career researchers and inspire the next generation to get involved in the protection of Antarctica.
