Icy wind, bitter cold and months of darkness – the Polarstern’s expedition to the Arctic was extreme. Starting in 2019, the research ship drifted through the Arctic Ocean for over a year. The team collected information on the changing Arctic climate: a milestone for climate research.
For families and school classes. With lots of opportunities to participate.
The exhibition “Thin Ice” in the Ladestraße of the German Museum of Technology takes visitors on a climate expedition. School classes and families find out what it's like to conduct research in the Arctic. They measure the ice thickness, look for microorganisms and find out how long multi-year ice will last. It is clear: the Arctic is our early warning system. And the warning is clear. There's little time left. We must act now to prevent climate catastrophe.
In cooperation with the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research.
