Students on Ice

STUDENTS ON ICE is an award-winning organization offering unique educational expeditions to the Antarctic and the Arctic. Its mandate is to provide students, educators and scientists from around the world with inspiring educational opportunities at the ends of the Earth and, in doing so, help them foster a new understanding and respect for the planet.

Students on Ice is an organization near and dear to my heart. I had the privilege of travelling with SOI to Antarctica as a teacher-chaperone in December 2005. It was the experience of a lifetime. If you have an interest in the polar regions, or want to learn about the tremendous opportunities that Geoff Green and his staff provide, check out their website at Spaces are still available for the fundraiser being held on Sunday April 28th at the Nota Bene Restaurant, 180 Queen Street West, Toronto.
