Greenpeace is organising an immersive Antarctic exhibition to run in central Cambridge this July to bring the Antarctic to Christ’s Pieces. The installation will be open to the public during the day time and we’d love to offer the opportunity for local schools pupils to come and learn about the Antarctic Ocean between 7-11th July. Please see the poster attached.

 

In our immersive geo-dome, showcasing incredible 360° video footage from Greenpeace’s recent expedition to the Antarctic, pupils can:

-          Dive down to the Antarctic seabed with scientists, fly high above the ice and visit a penguin colony in our virtual reality short films

-          Put questions to an Antarctic expert and hear about their journey to the other end of the world  

-          Watch video projections from Greenpeace’s recent expedition to the Antarctic, showcasing the vibrant marine life under the waves

-          Hear from people across the world about why they want to help protect the Antarctic

-          Get crafty – send your message to governments about why we need to protect our oceans, and enter a drawing competition of your favourite Antarctic animal

 

This is part of Greenpeace’s Protect the Antarctic campaign, aiming to convince governments to create the largest protected area on Earth in the Antarctic Ocean this October.  1.6 million people around the world have signed a petition in support, and any of our team would be delighted to talk with pupils about the importance of healthy oceans and what they can do to protect sea creatures like penguins, whales and seals.

 If you’re interested in visiting the dome with pupils and would like more information, please let Louisa Casson know onlouisa.casson@greenpeace.org or 07772 304 063.
