Meet the Creator of My Explorer Journal
My Explorer Journal was created and illustrated by 20-year-old Anzac Gallate, one of Antarctic Heritage Trust’s Inspiring Explorers™. Anzac took part in the Trust’s Inspiring Explorers Expedition™ to the Antarctic Peninsula in March 2020.
Inspiring Explorers Expeditions™ provide opportunities for young people to challenge themselves in Antarctica and the polar regions, connecting young people with the legacy the Trust cares for and encouraging them to embrace that same spirit of exploration. They also create a platform to share inspiring stories and experiences with their communities and the Trust’s global audience.
Anzac’s My Explorer Journal is one of the most exciting and creative outreach projects delivered by the Trust’s Inspiring Explorers™ so far. Working with the Trust’s team, and production company Staples VR, Anzac’s project will enable school students everywhere to embrace the spirit of exploration through the future focused lens of augmented reality.
Anzac is currently studying marine biology at the University of Otago, and he blends his scientific mind with his creative mind for this project, sharing the importance of Antarctica to the world alongside stories of the early polar explorers and their work furthering science and exploration on behalf of humankind.
