With just over a week to go, I’ve organised contact routes and schedules for family and colleagues, and put personal affairs in order. Started to make lists of essential gear to pack. And need to finish marking before I head off!
Tomorrow I am visiting Roundhay School, Leeds to talk about the Antarctic and its environment. As part of my role as a STEM Ambassador I think it is important we try and inspire the next generation of students about how interesting science can be.
