Welcome! Bienvenidos! Bienvenue! Tunngasugit! The 2014 Students on Ice Antarctic expedition is our 15th Annual journey to the bottom of the world! It was an undoubtedly a profound hands-on and life-altering experience for youth to expand their knowledge of Antarctica’s global importance, foster a new understanding and respect for the planet, and gain understanding, inspiration and motivation needed to help lead us to a healthy and sustainable future.
This ship-based expedition brought together 66 high school and university students from around the world with 23 inspiring scientists, educators, artists, musicians, CEO’s, polar experts and innovators.
Immersed in awe-inspiring nature and engaged in cross-disciplinary activity, each day of our journey was filled with exploration and discovery…and a few penguins! We also celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition, which included a visit to Elephant Island!
