This week students in Bayards Hill and Cheney had a fascinating talk from Dr Tom Hart who is a Penguinologist at Oxford University and is just getting ready to go on a 3-month expedition to Antarctica. Tom spoke about why he works in penguin conservation, what it’s like to live in the remotest parts of the land for 3 months and covered important points like what kind of food they eat!
You can track what Tom and his team gets up to on expeditions here: https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/penguintom79/penguin-watch
Tom has some great plans for further outreach – and wants to get other speakers with jobs equally as fascinating as his. We will look to stream the sessions from Cheney/Bayards to other schools in the local area to extend the opportunity.
