Explore Antarctica through virtual reality then design and build a renewable energy system to survive this challenging climate.

How can science help us survive in extreme environments? 

Students learn about Antarctica’s extreme environment and are immersed into: 

  •  a virtual trip to Antarctica 
  • A survival game – will you make it home? 
  • A design challenge where they design and create equipment to support research in this extreme environment. 

Students then participate in an unconference style experience where they share their design thinking and product with their peers.
