Ice Station huskies for summer exhibition launch

Ice Station huskies for summer exhibition launch

Four huskies from Cabarfeidh Huskies (Dundee) Polo, Max, Zeus and Jet were among the first to sample ‘Ice Station Antarctica’, Dundee Science Centre’s brand new exhibition, which will run from Monday 30 June through to Tuesday 30 September 2014.

The family exhibition, which will see the Centre transformed into an amazing Antarctic exploration, is making its first public outing in the UK since its presence in London’s Natural History Museum.

Antarctica is the coldest, windiest and most remote continent on this planet.  While terrifying, it is also beautiful.  There is no doubt that it takes a brave and tough person to live and work out here.  In this exhibition, visitors will brave a variety of Antarctic challenges, from coping in sub-zero temperatures and testing out a replica base station, to riding a snowmobile.  As well as exploring the skills it takes to work in and preserve this frozen wilderness, a series of mini-environments will help visitors to learn about and explore this unique continent.

Through video footage, an amazing cold room to replicate the extremes of Antarctica and authentic and life-saving Antarctic clothing, the exhibition brings the region to life – from its wildlife, living and working conditions and scientific research taking place there, to its sheer, breath-taking beauty.

Louise Smith, Chief Executive, Dundee Science Centre said, “At Ice Station Antarctica, we will really see who’s got what it takes to brave Antarctica.  Every year, hundreds of scientists and their support team of experts travel to Antarctica, braving the harshest of conditions and freezing temperatures in order to carry out crucial research and we are delighted to be opening up this incredible, treacherous world to our visitors, exploring whether they could survive the cold, live with wild animals, dive under sea ice and even camp out in this part of the World!”

Ice Station Antarctica was developed by the Natural History Museum in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey (BAS).

Dundee Science Centre and Discovery Point have teamed up to bring visitors the Antarctic adventure of a lifetime.  The Antarctic Explorer Pass allows entry to both venues – with over 20% saving on cost:  Adult £12.50 (normal cost £16), child £8.50 (normal cost £10.50) or concession £9.50 (normal cost £12).  The pass can be purchased at either venue and will be stamped at each destination.

Dundee Science Centre is open daily from 10am-5pm. For further information, please telephone 01382 228800 or visit www.dundeesciencecentre.org.uk.
