Education

Several organisations have educational programmes relating to Antarctica. These programmes are available to schools throughout New Zealand and are taught by teachers, many with first-hand experience of the Ice. Programmes are generally tailored to the needs of the visiting groups which may include preschool, primary, secondary, tertiary and community groups.

Antarctica New Zealand has provided links to information sites on a variety of subjects and in good faith. However, it does not accept any responsibility for the quality or the material on any of the sites.
