Working with schools
Do you want to access up to the minute resources to teach about climate change and related topics? Or to hear directly from an explorer, scientist or those living in the Arctic?
WWW offers schools a unique way to teach about climate change by providing resources that meet cross-curricula requirements, as well as bringing the issue to life for students through direct contact with those who have witnessed climate change in the Arctic for themselves.
WWW’s schools programme strives to inspire students to care about climate change, the impact on our planet, and to engage in activities that will reduce our footprint on the Earth.
For more information about how your school can work with WWW visit our SCHOOLS PORTAL or download our SCHOOLS INFORMATION LEAFLET.

Northabout open days – a taste of life as an Arctic Explorer!
During British Science Week, on Saturdays 11 and 18 March, Northabout was open to visitors at her berth in Portishead Marina.
The open days were a rare opportunity to set foot aboard this Arctic expedition yacht and to meet crew from the Polar Ocean Challenge. Over 500 people came down and it was fantastic to meet children and their families from so many of the schools that we have worked with over the last year, as well as meet new faces that we look forward to working with in the future.
Each young visitor was able to take away a bracelet made from rope that had travelled around the North Pole during the Polar Ocean Challenge!
Having completed the multi-record-breaking Polar Ocean Challenge in summer 2016, Northabout will be setting sail again later this year on her next expedition to Greenland!
