Preparing for the school year

It's been about three months since I released episode 5 of Arctic Andy's Tales From a Floe and exactly two years since I was in the middle of a frozen ocean during the 2018 Arctic Ocean Expedition.

Since many people—including parents, teachers and students—are having to deal with home schooling or remote learning this fall, I thought it'd be good to post some more material online.

Arctic Andy's Tales From a Floe 6: Festivities

In addition to releasing episode 6 of Arctic Andy's Tales From a Floe, I recorded a presentation, The Adventures of (Ant)Arctic Andy, that I gave in 2016 at a summer camp.

The Adventures of (Ant)Arctic Andy

The Adventures of (Ant)Arctic Andy is a longer video (23 mins) with the first 7 minutes focusing on some of the science behind studying Earth's climate that I find interesting. During the last 16 minutes, I share some of my adventures in the Arctic and Antarctic.

Hopefully this material is helpful for you, your family and your community to safely transition into the 2020-2021 school year, and that we can inspire interest in the Arctic, Antarctic, Earth's climate and the study of our oceans.

Stay safe. 😷
