Polar Fun Days

This is our flagship programme for primary school activities. Through ETE’s Polar Fun Days schools are able to invite a Polar ambassadors into the classroom to tell stories of their expeditions and the environments they have travelled through. With primary school activities ranging from assemblies to full activity days, Polar Fun Days teach children about the environment, animals and people of the Polar Regions, the causes and impacts of climate change, and inspire young people to follow their own dreams in life.
