EDU-ARCTIC invites students from secondary schools across Europe to join the Arctic Competition with their teachers and develop a science project or an innovation project designed for an arctic environment. Young students and their teachers who are fascinated by disciplines such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics, though not yet scientists, will have the opportunity to take part in a scientific expedition in the Arctic. The Arctic competition is for teams of one student, aged 13 to 20, and one teacher. Participating teams can come from secondary schools across Europe.

The teams can win an expedition to one of the Arctic stations within the EDU-ARCTIC project. These are located in Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Svalbard, as well as the Northern Norway. In 2017 (summer) the destinations of the Arctic expeditions are to the Faroe Islands and to Iceland. In 2018 (summer) the destinations for the expeditions will be Northern Norway and Svalbard.

For more details, please consult the Arctic competitions page on the EDU-ARCTIC website, as well as the competition rules and the information sheet about the competition. We've also prepared additional FAQs for participants with useful information and tips.  If you have any questions about the competition, you may contact Lis Mortensen: This email address is being protected from spambots.
