Ny Alesund next destination!!!

By Amélie // Thursday 13 Sep // 18:42:29 // View

Hey

 Since my last blog, we’ve done tons.  We visited Big Ben, the parliament, covent garden, oxfort St., and the london bridge. All very fun, but we’ve also been working really hard.  We’ve been modifying our science projects as well as our art projects.  Yesterday, we took the plane to stockholm and slept there, then today sept.13, we’ve taken 2 more flights and are now in longyearbyen up in Svalbard.  The settlement here is bigger than I imagined, and the mountains are absolutely stunning.  We’ve just finished eating pizza at the youth group here where we met tons of other kids.  The ppl here are great.  We played Table football and it was a lot of fun.  Tomorrow we are headingto Ny Alesund, and we will be staying on the boat.

 Keep sending me lots of comments. 

My next video is on Tuesday 18th of september at 12  and I will be on the web half hour afterwards.

 Anyhow gtg, byebye

Peace amelie

P.S.  Hey chambly, friends and ¤family¤ everyone else c ya

Hello ppl,

Right now I’m in London and so far I’ve had tons of interviews and I’ve met so many ppl.  Everyone are kool and interesting.  On sunday we had the cape farewell launch in London and we went for a really fun boat ride.  We waved to our fans.  We went all way to the London Bridge and back to the parliament.  We got of beside the London Eye, where I soon plan to embark.  Anyhow I am enjoying everything and learning lots.  Keep blogging for more info.

 Peace, amelie tremblay-martin

Amélie
Chambly Academy, Montreal, Canada

Science Project
Amélie wants to observe variations between species of plankton in the sea by taking several samples of plankton, a range of distances from a glacier, to see if plankton species vary according to salinity. Temperature and salinity are a crucial component in the study of how oceans currents work.

Art Project
Amélie wants to collect images and ideas to paint a mural at her school.  She also wants the image of the mural to be on the cover of the school’s student journal.
