Challenge Antarctica: A Family Workshop
This family workshop is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Race to the End of the Earth. The workshop will take place on July 31 and August 21 at 1pm in National Geographic’s cafeteria: 1600 M St. NW Washington, DC 20008. It will also be offered on July 28 at the Deanwood Library at 1:30pm and on August 9 at the Palisades Library at 1:30pm.
One hundred years ago Antarctica was a mysterious, largely unexplored continent. Two teams led by Britain’s Robert F. Scott and Norway’s Roald Amundsen braved starvation and harsh weather conditions in a race to be first to the South Pole. Pack your bags, plan your trip, and join them on an adventure of a lifetime. Each decision you make will be critical to your success and survival. Will you choose fur or wool clothing? Will you ski to the South Pole? Be pulled by a dogsled? Use a motorized vehicle? What will you take to eat? What kind of shelter will you build to wait out the long Antarctic winter? Do you have what it takes?
