Welcome to the SOI-IPY weblog
Hello! And a happy polar greeting to you all from the gang here at Students on Ice!
Thank you to IPY HQ for providing this opportunity for international youth to share their thoughts about the earth’s polar regions and about the upcoming International Polar Year! This is a great site, with many amazing blogs!
Here at SOI, we have just wrapped up another exciting Antarctic expedition - you can view highlights from the trip on our SOI website. We have invited our SOI alumni to visit this site, to explore the other blogs, and post their impressions, hopes and memories of Antarctica here. Many of our alumni are busy with environmental issues - some polar, some otherwise - and we are encouraging them to participate in this forum, too, and tell us about their various projects and activities.
You can visit our site to check out our own SOI weblog where we post polar news, alumni info., experiential eduction info. and other random polar thoughts which happen to cross our minds from time to time!
You will also find information about our IPY Expedition Series, which kicks off this summer with an amazing ship-based Canadian Arctic adventure!
Thanks for visiting!
Here are two images from our recent expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula!
