Students on Ice: Arctic Educational Expedition

Since 2015, YPASM has sent 10 secondary school students and 5 teachers, who were specially selected through a Polar Science Camp jointly organized by YPASM and the Ministry of Education (MOE), on pioneering educational adventures in which students and teachers undergo inspiring and life-altering experiences. One of this innovative project’s key goals is to figuratively “pass the torch” to subsequent generations by providing youths the inspiration, knowledge and motivation to respect and protect our planet. The expedition involves a voyage from Ottawa across the North Atlantic to explore the communities, coastlines, and fjords of Western Greenland before crossing the Davis Straits to reconnoitre Canada’s High Arctic. The Malaysian students and teachers selected for such expedients mingle with 100 secondary school students and teachers as well as scientists, historians, travellers, and writers from throughout the world as they embark on an awe-inspiring that provides them priceless insights into the breath-taking ecosystems and unique biomes that flourish in the Arctic region.
