Frozen Kingdoms Interactive Schools Project November 2018





LiketoBe’s, Frozen Kingdoms interactive project is now open for students, teachers and schools to register to take part in the coming academic year. The project will follow Polar Explorer and Entrepreneur, Antony Jinman, and Wildlife Film Maker and Conservationist, Ruth Peacey, on their polar journey, giving young people in Key Stages 1 to 4 the opportunity to learn all there is to know about the cooler regions of our planet. In collaboration with a host of polar experts from across the globe, Antony and Ruth will take you on a truly immersive journey from the comfort of your classroom.

About Frozen Kingdoms Interactive Schools Project


From November 2018 to January 2019 Antony and Ruth be travelling the Peninsula of Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Island with the aim of bringing this experience directly into the school classroom. On their journey they will be supported by a team of polar experts who together will be providing regular blogs, photos and videos giving an eye witness account and expert knowledge of the wildlife, environment and history of the areas they traverse, to young people all over the world.

The Frozen Kingdoms project is open to students studying in Key Stages 1 to 4 and is made up of tailored lesson plans, presentations and videos enabling our frozen regions to be brought straight into the classroom setting. Topics that will be covered include wildlife conservation, impacts of climate change, the geography and history of the environment and native populations just to name a few!

The project is being hosted within the educational careers networking site LiketoBe.org, thus enabling students to access discussion forums, debate topics, share ideas and ask questions to the team throughout their journey. Students will also be invited to take part in competitions giving them a real opportunity to not only learn more about the Polar Regions, but to also develop valuable skills towards learning and work.

Removing the Biggest Barrier to Young People’s Aspirations

We can give the next generation the spark to ready them for the future says Antony Jinman. 
What would you like to be when you leave school? Were you asked as a child? Perhaps you remember what you said. A footballer; farmer; engineer; doctor; nurse; astronaut? 
Whatever the response, the point is that our dreams matter. Becoming a physiotherapist because an early love of rugby was nurtured is a great thing. An engineer looking back fondly at childhood memories of building mighty cityscapes from Lego is a great thing. 
Yet so many young people aren’t aware of the career options available, lack the role models (beyond celebrities and sports starts perhaps!) to inspire them and don’t know the practical steps to start considering how to get from where you want to be. 

Antony's Career Journey
We’re in the midst of exam season, a time of stress for many when pathways are set and the next steps are taken, academic or otherwise. For me it certainly wasn’t academic progress. At secondary schoo…

A bridge between learning and work

Asking a child what they want to be when they grow up can be a great conversation opener. They will be very honest with you about their aspirations, and tell you how they are going to become a police officer, train driver, nurse or scientist. But as they grow older, and they learn more about the world around them and their potential role within it, children may become a little more circumspect. When they eventually leave school, many children simply don't know where they are headed, because they know very little about the job market.

When I was 16, I was asked by my careers guidance tutor what I would do when I left school. I told him quite frankly that I wanted to be an astronaut. It wasn't an aspiration that was treated seriously, because there weren't many astronaut jobs going in 1972. And yet, as I developed my career around research, teaching and innovation, I did become an 'astronaut' of sorts - an explorer of learning and technology and the connections bet…
