The Mobile Antarctic Classroom

The Antarctic Environmental Science and Sustainability Bus

Bringing Antarctica to You!

Antarctica holds the key to understanding Earth’s past climate and is crucial in understanding its future.

Research in Antarctica and the Southern Oceans is helping us to discover answers to some of the Earth’s most pressing questions.

The Foundation’s Antarctic Environmental Science and Sustainability Bus is on tour around Australia helping students and teachers foster an interest and understanding of Environmental Science.

Donated to the Foundation by Charles Lindall, an avid Mawson follower, the converted Toyota Coaster, has been fitted out with the assistance of a grant from the Federal Government’s Protecting National Historic Sites Programme.

It is part of the Foundation’s school education programme which includes visits by children to the Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum and the Australian Antarctic Festival held in Hobart every two years.

The presenters are David London, a member of the Mawson’s Huts Foundation conservation expedition in 2008-9, who spent six weeks photographing and working on the historic huts at Cape Denison and David Dieckfoss, a qualified Antarctic Science Educator with over 30 years of experience developing and delivering science engagement programmes for schools, universities and research organisations.
