Introducing ‘Ice Worlds’, a dazzling showcase of environmental science, engineering and technology at the British Antarctic Survey.

Why are the Polar Regions so important to study? And what makes them so unique? Use this rare opportunity to find out what BAS scientists are investigating in the Polar Regions. To give you a taste of what it’s like to live and work on the frozen continents, meet polar scientists and engineers who live there, discover the methods they use to study the ice, rocks, ocean and animals, and how these icy landscapes are being affected by climate change.

See some of the amazing biodiversity that inhabits the freezing seas and experience what it’s like to live and work under canvas in a tent or on our new polar research ship RRS Sir David Attenborough. Expect cool kit, lots of samples, Antarctic clothing, films, historical archives and lots more.
