French Polar Week 2013

APECS French polar week photoAbout 600 students in 18 different schools participated in the second French Polar Week, which was organised between September 30 and October 4 by the recently created French national committee. Seven webinars allowed students to learn about polar regions, with topics ranging from biology to geopolitics.

Teachers were also invited to participate in a science & art activity about the Antarctic Food web, where students learned about the different species of the ecosystem, about the links between these species, and about the things that might affect krill abundance such as harvesting strategies or climate change. The students' drawings were compiled to create an image of the Antarctic ecosystem.
