Arctic Islands – Science
Today we had a visit from Ms Alison McLure who works with the Royal Society of Edinburgh. She is a physicist who has traveled to the Arctic and Antarctic to work with teams of scientists (biologists, botanists, geologists and many more) to conduct research. She told us about one of her most recent visits to Svalbard today. We learnt lots about how to get into such expeditions and she has hopefully inspired some of us in learning more within the sciences.
