The day started with a presentation from an Atmospheric Scientist - he talked about what he does, the experiments he is involved with (he even let them use one of his sensors that detects particles in the air), a run down on the atmosphere, clouds (including a making clouds activity), his research trips and wonderful stories about his experiences in sub zero climates, frostbite and a polar bear.
The kids all clamoured to try on his Arctic weather gear : )
In the afternoon we had various hands on activities including a penguin drawing table,
being educated on ice fishing and how to make an emergency fish rod,
a demonstration on the differences between the Arctic/Antarctic,
and an insulation experiment.
There was also a great activity about packing for cold weather where they had to select suitable clothes from a rail and fill a suitcase.
