Robert Falcon Scott

In 1911 Captain Robert Falcon Scott led a five man team to reach the South Pole. They reached the Pole on the 18th of January 1912 only to find they had been beaten to it by a Norwegian team weeks earlier. Learn how their heroic sacrifice captured the imagination of a Nation and extended our knowledge of the most hostile place on Earth

  • Listen to Scott's stories of his Antarctic adventures

  • Pupils sit under canvas in tents listening to the sounds of Antarctica

  • Play a board game to learn about the animals of Antarctica 

“Gasps of excitement could be heard the second Adrian entered the classroom on skis wrapped head to toe in a snowsuit. He took them on their own orienteering adventure led as Captain Scott. The expedition was accomplished when the explorers reached their tents where biscuit treats were delightfully received as a reward. Without a doubt we will be booking Adrian again in the near future.”
