1. And the winners are … Yes! four teams will visit Arctic this summer!
The last, 3rd edition of Arctic Competition was unique. For the first time, up to two students could be a part of a team. More importantly, competition level at the third stage was extremely high: only four teams out of 14 finalists from seven countries could win. Also, the level of proposed projects and students’ preparation was really impressive. It was very hard to choose the winners, who will go to Faroe Islands and Svanhovd, northern Norway (two teams in each location).
We are very happy to announce the best of the best:
- Thomas Wielfaert with Ines Tavernier from Belgium
- Annelia Vakrinou with Eirini Siotou from Greece
- Katarina Ahlin Rezar with Adela Zigert from Slovenia
- Judith Zaragoza López and Tarik El Aichouni Jouied with Jordi Escofet Miro from Spain
This year, more than ever, we were astonished by the creativity, consciousness and involvement shown by participants. From model simulating Polar Day and Night, through analysing heavy metals in bears’ fur or studying effects of UV radiation on Valerian plants, to nanoplastics in the sea ice: they were all great ideas, with fresh approach and very mature background.
Congratulations to all the students and their teachers-mentors!
2. Last days of registration – EDU-ARCTIC Final Conference
Two days of amazing lectures tackling Arctic issues from various perspectives, hands-on activities, teachers’ testimonies, good practice and guided visit at Atmosphere Observatory of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines in Guyancourt: no chance for boredom during the final conference summarizing our project on 23-24 May 2019. There is still time to register: https://edu-arctic.eu/conference
