Data to the Rescue: Penguins Need Our Help! 

Antarctica is a place that has had little human interference.  No one lives there permanently, and it teems with interesting marine life. In this adventure, your job will be to help Dr. Megan Cimino understand what is happening to the penguin species on the Western Antarctic Peninsula. You will use your expert knowledge to create a Data Jam to help others learn and understand. 

Here is the itinerary for your Adventure!

Welcome to The Polar Explorer Adventure!

In this Adventure, you will complete a series of activities, each of which will allow you to earn a Polar Explorer Adventure badge.

By working through the modules, you will plan your own adventure to the Polar Regions, dig into some scientific data, and help us learn about the penguins along the West Antarctic Peninsula, so we can find solutions to save them.

Before going out into the field, scientists must first learn about where they are going and what they need to pack to work there. This is especially true for the harsh and unforgiving Polar Regions.

So, before you go exploring, you must first learn about the two Polar Regions to figure out what we will need to pack your bags. Let’s get started!
