Inspiring Explorers™ Education
The Trust works with partners to create and deliver rich and powerful content virtually and directly to New Zealand students through their classrooms and special exhibitions.
Sharing the stories of the early polar explorers and the legacy the Trust cares for in Antarctica, the programme educates students about our Antarctic heritage and its relevance today. The education programme gives young people the opportunity to learn about and develop an explorer mindset.
Utilising emerging technology such as virtual and augmented reality students have the opportunity to be transported to Antarctica and to learn about this special place, its history and importance to the world today.
Inspiring Explorers™ Education aims for diversity in the programme, reaching students throughout New Zealand across ethnic and socio-economic demographics, through school tours, exhibitions, and free online content.
