Mentors Needed: Students on Ice Antarctic University Expedition 2011

StudentsonIce.com has a few spots open in its upcoming University Antarctic Expedition, Feb. 12-28, for adults to join the team as a mentor. Prices have been reduced because of the short timing, so here’s your chance to see Antarctica.

This ship-based expedition offers prospective students the opportunity to enroll in one of several University-level field courses, and experience one of the most awe inspiring places on Earth. SOI uses an interdisciplinary approach to examine the uniqueness of the Antarctic continent, its political, scientific and exploration history.

Once in Antarctic waters, all students and mentors will make frequent field trips to the Antarctic mainland via Zodiac inflatables from the main ship. These landings will be supplemented by lectures, seminars and lab exercises in dedicated space aboard our expedition vessel, the M/V Ushuaia.

The expedition will have approximately 60 participating University students, and 30 University faculty, scientists, experts, and educators. If interested in mentoring on this trip of a lifetime, see www.uantarctic.org, then contact: Geoff Green, Executive Director, Students on Ice, geoff@studentsonice.com.
