Polar Explorer Antony Jinman, founder of the Education Through Expeditions project, is a real news maker and great inspiring man, whose mission is to bring world’s knowledge to children right from field studies. Here is other news from him:
On April 17th, Polar Explorer Antony Jinman and his teammates Vijay Shah and Duncan Eadie started their way to Baffin Island, the largest Arctic Archipelago in the Canadian territory of Nunavut, and attempt a first British crossing of the Penny Ice Cap from Okoa Bay, unassisted to Pangnirtung.
The ETEorg press release says:
“This project will cover over 200km, starting and ending at sea level but rising to 1900 metres at its highest point. The mountain passes makes for spectacular scenary as the team traverse this landscape documenting the changes taking place by climate change in photography and film.”
“This expedition is the 8th to Baffin Island by Antony Jinman, witnessing first hand how the landscape is changing and voicing the concerns of the Inuit communitees visited.”
“This expedition will also be the first test expedition for Education Through Expeditions and its discussion board platform for schools, ETETeachers. Our discussion board will be joined by scientists and teachers so that students questions can be discussed and expressed as the expedition unfolds. Through testing this platform we aim to help further develop our services at ETE to aid the classroom and inspire children to follow their own aspirations in life.”
“This expedition will be a key element in the continuing planning and preparations for the International Scott Centnenary Expedition in 2012.”
