We are delighted to announce that our Weddell Sea Expedition resources have been selected as a finalist for The Education Resources Awards.
Now in their 19th year, these national awards celebrate the quality and diversity of educational resources throughout the UK. Judged by a panel of experts and chaired by the British Educational Suppliers Association, our resources have been shortlisted for the Free Educational Resources category.
As the educational partner of the Weddell Sea Expedition, we have produced a range of free resources suitable for all key stages. These include posters, timelines, podcasts and videos, animations and case studies on topics from the geography of the Weddell Sea and ice shelf processes in Antarctica, to life above and below the sea ice and what life is like on board a polar research ship.
The Weddell Sea Expedition is currently on its return back to South Africa, after successfully completing the expedition’s science programme of investigating the ice shelves around the Weddell Sea and documenting the rich and little studied marine life of the ecosystem. Unfortunately, due to adverse weather conditions, the expedition had to call off the search for Shackleton’s Endurance.
Take a look at our shortlisted resources.
