Crash Course Cryosphere

Crash Course Cryosphere (C3) launches Monday, 3rd April 2017 at 18.00 hrs. We are excited to share the project with you and hope that you will join us on this icy adventure!

C3 is a collaboration between Dr Tom Dowling and YouTuber/PhD student Simon Clark, that takes glacial and polar science to the internet public. Basing ourselves at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge University, we delve into the science of ice and the history of the objects used to explore the polar regions. The series is primarily aimed at secondary students considering studying science based topics at University and first year undergraduates across the natural sciences. We also hope that there is something here that everyone will find interesting.

Hosted on the YouTube channel of Simon Clark, each video will tackle a different area of glacial science, peruse the Scott Polar Museum’s collection and examine some of the physics behind the icey world. Both co-creators will be in the comments section of each episode for two hours after upload to answer any immediate questions and queries.
