All Year 10 pupils have the use of the Cape Farewell pack, produced by the Geographical Assocation. It describes a journey made to Svalbard by a group of people including scientists and artists.
I've just discovered via one of my other side-projects that there is currently another CAPE FAREWELL voyage underway even as I type...
The journey started in Svalbard, at Longyearbyen, and there are video diaries, and diaries and blogs from the Youth Expedition, which has just returned. The ship: the Noordelicht is currently sailing across to Greenland and to Scoresby Sound.
Check this out - a cool resource... (do you see what I did there...)
