STEM Arctic and Antarctic

A dive into the world of Arctic and Antarctic. Cool facts about these cold places.

Tackle the most extreme places on Earth. How do animals and plants cope with such extreme cold conditions that are found there? Why is it so cold? And how cold is it?

We love to observe animals with the goal of getting inspiration. This approach to learning can be seen in some of the activities where the students are asked to use nature as inspiration for new ideas and as a way to solve problems.
