There is no better way to start the day than with a helicopter ride in Antarctica. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking back at Scott Base from the helicopter. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley enjoys a helicopter ride out to the K131 field camp 60 kilometres away from Scott Base. Image: LEARNZ.
Coming into land at K131's field camp on the sea ice. Image: LEARNZ.
A modern sea ice field camp is more like glamping than camping. How was this camp Image: LEARNZ
Natalie shows Shelley around her field camp. How does this camp compare to Scott and Shackleton's huts? Image: LEARNZ.
Natalie shows how a Niskin bottle can be used to collect a sample of sea water. When were these bottles invented? Image: LEARNZ.
Brett deploys an instrument which measures turbulence in the water. What do you think the frill at the top of this instrument is for? Image: LEARNZ.
Gabby is an artist who is recording the K131 project through painting and photography.
Gabby takes a photo of platelet ice out at the K131 field camp. Why do you think Gabby is using coloured lights? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors back at Scott Base reflect on an amazing week in Antarctica. What did you learn during the field trip? Image: LEARNZ
You headed out across the sea ice on the Hagglund to visit Cape Royds. How far is Cape Royds from Scott Base? Image: LEARNZ.
You drove alongside the edge of the Barne Glacier on your way to Cape Royds. Image: LEARNZ.
Cracks are starting to form in the sea ice. How deep and wide does a crack have to be before you can't travel across it in the Hagglunds? Image: LEARNZ.
Welcome to Cape Royds, an ASPA - Antarctic Specially Protected Area. Why do you think this area is protected? Image: LEARNZ.
Lizzie and Shelley outside Shackleton's Nimrod Hut at Cape Evans. When do you think this hut was built? Image: LEARNZ.
Shackleton's Hut at Cape Royds felt quite homely compared to Scott's larger hut at Cape Evans. Image: LEARNZ.
The bunks in Shackleton's hut didn't look particularly comfortable and some were folded away each day to give more room inside the hut for the 15 men who lived here. Image: LEARNZ.
Lizzie, Shelley and the ambassadors look around Shackleton's hut. Image: LEARNZ.
You can see the remains of a Stevenson screen which would have been used to shelter instruments to measure the weather. Stevenson screens are still used today. Image: LEARNZ.
You could see adorable Adelie penguins setting up nests at Cape Royds. Image: LEARNZ.
You could see small kennels that would have been used for husky puppies during Shackleton's Nimrod Expedition. This hut has been preserved by the Antarctic Heritage Trust so people can experience a piece of Antarctic history. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking back at Scott Base as we travel out across the sea ice on the way to Cape Evans. Image: LEARNZ.
Flags mark the safest route across the sea ice. How thick do you think the sea ice is? Image: LEARNZ.
You travelled on Hagglunds out to Cape Evans. Why do you think these vehicles are used in Antarctica. Image: LEARNZ.
Mount Erebus, an active volcano could be seen smoking as you headed out to Cape Evans. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking over the frozen bay at Cape Evans towards Scott's Terra Nova Hut. Image: LEARNZ.
Lizzie and Shelley outside Scott's Terra Nova Hut. Why do you think Scott decided to build this hut here? Image: LEARNZ.
Walking into Scott's Hut was like walking back in time. It was dark inside and it took a while for your eyes to adjust from the glare of the snow outside. Image: LEARNZ.
You can see the acetylene gas lighting system which was used to light the hut and the bunks in the background. Image: LEARNZ.
An emperor penguin can be seen inside Scott's Hut. How do you think they preserved the penguin and why were they interested in this bird? Image: LEARNZ.
You could see a lot of science equipment inside Scott's Hut. Image: LEARNZ.
The Antarctic Heritage Trust has done a lot of work to conserve Scott's Terra Nova Hut. Why do you think it is important to preserve the historic huts in Antarctica? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and Lizzie talk to Spring Creek School and St Mark's School during today's audioconference. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking out over Scott's Discovery Hut towards McMurdo Station. How old is this hut? Image: LEARNZ.
Lizzie and Shelley outside Discovery Hut, the oldest hut in the Ross Sea area. Image: LEARNZ.
An old seal carcass can be seen outside Discovery Hut. What were seals used for during Scott's expedition? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors explore Scott's Discovery Hut. Image: LEARNZ.
There were lots of interesting objects inside the Discovery Hut. What objects can you identify in this photo? Image: LEARNZ.
Boxes of supplies and even biscuits have been preserved in the Discovery Hut. Image: LEARNZ.
An old telephone from Hillary's TAE Hut is being preserved. Image: LEARNZ.
Sue shows you an old can that has corroded and now needs to be treated to stop further corrosion. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley meets Sue, an object conservator from the Antarctic Heritage Trust. What does Sue's job involve. Image: LEARNZ.
Ciaran works on restoring an object from Hillary's Hut. Image: LEARNZ.
Hillary's Hut is being restored by the Antarctic Heritage Trust. Why is this hut important and worth restoring? Image: LEARNZ.
The roof of Hillary's Hut is being fixed and restored to its original colour. What colour was the hut orignally? Image: LEARNZ.
Doug and Geoff are replacing boards on the roof. You can see the black sealant that they have added to stop water from getting under the board. Image: LEARNZ.
Lizzie tells Shelley about the asbestos being removed from the hut. Why do you think the asbestos has to be removed? Image: LEARNZ.
Matt is suited up ready to enter Hillary's Hut to safely remove asbestos. Image: LEARNZ.
Take a look through one of the windows in Hillary's Hut to see where asbestos is being removed from the walls. Image: LEARNZ.
Bags of asbestos will be shipped back to New Zealand for disposal. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley prepares to board the C17 Globemaster aircraft destined for Antarctica. Image: LEARNZ.
There is even room for a helicopter inside the C17 aircraft. Why do you think the C17 aircraft are used for flying to Antarctica? Image: LEARNZ.
Not the most comfortable seats but it is great to be on our way to Antarctica. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors enjoy a visit to the cockpit of the C17 aircraft. Image: LEARNZ.
After flying four hours south sea ice can be seen from the C17. Image: LEARNZ.
Mountains can be seen as we fly over northern Victoria Land. How high is the highest mountain in Antarctica? Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley is super excited to finally arrive in Antarctica. The plane has landed on the ice shelf. How thick do you think this ice shelf is? Image: LEARNZ.
Welcome to Scott Base, your home for the next few days. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors practice pitching tents during their Antarctic Field Training. What else do you think people should learn about in order to stay safe while in Antarctica? Image: LEARNZ.
It is such a privilege to be in such a spectacular place. Image: LEARNZ.
