Encounter Edu has been working with scientific research teams and expeditions from both polar regions and many places in between. After a decade of pioneering live linking classrooms to the world, the Encounter Edu team will share some of stories of adventure in making this come true and investigate what impact this can have in the classroom.

What does science look like at minus 40 degrees? Do we need to put crocodiles on the experiment risk assessment? How does research actually happen?

These are just some of the questions that are answered when a class is given the opportunity to interact via live video with research teams working at the frontiers of science.
