The plan to commemorate Scott's centenary and the death of the Polar Party is a noble and fitting tribute. I support the efforts of the team at ISCE and wish them all the very best for their plans in Antarctica in 2012.

On 22nd & 23rd February, the ISCE hosted the Polar Fun Days at the Devonport Guildhall through our partners, ETE. The aim was to teach and inspire children about Polar Science, Exploration and Captain Scott! The Polar Fun Days were featured on BBC Spotlight as well as gaining national media coverage in
the Daily Telegraph.
147 people attended over the two days, marking the introduction of our community outreach
programme. With the help of Plymouth City Council and Plymouth-based creative arts company, Stiltskin,
children spent their day making penguin masks, conducting fun scientific experiments and creating Inuit Art!
We would like to thank all our sponsors for the day, but in particular the Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation, Plymouth City Council and uniform company, Grahame Gardiner, who supplied 20 lab coats to keep kids from getting too messy during the exciting, hands-on activities.
Kerry Humphreys, who attended the day with her children, Ashton and Finley, said, â€œWhat a fabulous way to learn! I really wish Antony Jinman great success in all you do.â€ Whilst Ashton asked, "Can we come here every day?" and Finlay declared, "This has been the best day of my life!â€
