Last week Dr. Asen shared with the 4th graders about her adventures in Antarctica. Dr. Asen said she was inspired to go to Antarctica when she read Scott’s diary when she was a child. She was determined to get there one day, and in December her dream came true! You can read parts on Captain Robert Scott’s diary online.
Scott died while exploring Antarctica and wrote in his diary until the very end.
Enjoy more photos and videos of Dr. Asen’s expedition and the Barrett students’ participation in her presentation:
