UPDATE FROM THE ARCTIC—HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUBA

By Akash // Tuesday 18 Sep // 09:26:47 // View

Howdy Everyone,
Its Akash here up in the Arctic. I thought I would give you an update on what’s going on. Yesterday was so amazing we saw glaciers collapse like five times which was amazing because that just showed us that global warming is happening. Also yesterday it was Suba birthday which was amazing we had so much fun dancing around the ship and watching everyone enjoy the nice cake made by Anna.

So that’s my bit done.
Got to go.

Howdy everyone,
Its Akash here blogging in Central London. I’ll be going to the Arctic on Wednesay along with the Canadians, Germans and several students from Britain. It will be really exciting and I’m lookig forward to it. I’ll hopefully be making a labyrinth while I’m up in the Arctic along with my other 2 art projects; sound and pictures seen in unusual ways.

Remember to watch my video on Friday 21st September at 11 am UK time and from 11:30 am UK time I’ll be online ready to chat to you.
See you soon and send your messages in.
Akash :):):):)

What affects the melting rate of glaciers? Akash wants to know how the air temperature affects the way glaciers melt. He plans to measure the air temperature of a glacier from the top to the bottom.

Art Project
Akash hopes to collect a variety of sounds for his school from the Arctic, including sounds of glaciers, wildlife and wind, which will go towards a piece of sound art.
