Sign Up for Endurance22 Expedition Updates!
Reach the World, in partnership with the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust, is thrilled to announce the Endurance22 Expedition to Antarctica, the newest and largest virtual exchange expedition in organizational history! The Endurance22 Expedition will search for Sir Ernest Shackleton’s sunken ship, Endurance, the most famous undiscovered shipwreck in the world.
Endurance was easily one of the strongest ships of its era, built to withstand ice-choked polar seas. In 1915, Shackleton and the 27 members of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition found themselves trapped in pack ice in the remote Weddell Sea. They watched helplessly as the shifting ice slowly crushed Endurance, which then sank 10,000 feet to the sea floor. All alone at the bottom of the world, Shackleton led what is now a world-famous journey of survival, crossing hundreds of miles of unstable ice, punishing seas and even snow-covered mountain peaks to find rescue. Everyone survived to tell the tale, but Endurance has never been seen since.
Are you ready to join the search for Endurance? Reach the World invites K-12 educators and students to join a world-class team of explorers, underwater archeologists, marine scientists, marine robotics specialists and sailors as they journey into the Weddell Sea to write the final chapter of this epic story. Through weekly written articles, short videos, and live video calls with expedition participants, students will learn all about archeology, exploration, Antarctic wildlife, marine robotics, careers in STEM and much more.
This virtual exchange expedition is set to begin in September 2021 and will last throughout the 2021-22 academic year. Sign up today and don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to be a part of history!
