In November, world-famous polar explorers and former school teachers Ann Bancroft of the United State and Liv Arnesen of Norway began a trek that will culminate by skiing 2,400 miles across Antarctica, pulling 250-pound sleds loaded with food and supplies. They are the first women to ski across a continent with temperatures averaging minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit and winds gusting up to 100 miles per hour. The entire expedition is now available online, as part of the team’s mission to motivate and inspire students around the world. The team is leading a global education program from Antarctica during the 100-day trek, which is scheduled to end in February 2001. The program includes free curriculum developed by the National Center for Health Education on subjects such as science, nutrition, first aid, geography, history, and meteorology. The site also contains maps of the region, daily journal updates, online chats, and regular video and audio updates.
