The Class Zero Emission (CZE) mobile workshop

Date: Thursday 7th February 2013

Time: 02:00 PM to 03:00 PM

Location : Science oxford

The International Polar Foundation (IPF), supported by GDF Suez, is launching an exciting new project in the UK that allows school students “hands on” science relating to the Arctic and Antarctic while learning about climate change and sustainability.

The Class Zero Emission (CZE) mobile workshop introduces the Polar Regions through the use of film footage, polar clothing and large 3D models. Scientific experiments providing information on climate change are carried out to encourage debate on the importance of creating a sustainable future.

The workshop, which lasts for 1.5 to 2 hours, is suitable for school students aged between 10 and 18, although it can also be adapted for KS1. The CZE workshop will initially be available to schools/colleges in the Oxfordshire area from 17 February 2013.

A training session for use of the workshop is available as follows:

• Thur 7 Feb 2013: 2.00pm-5.00pm Science Oxford.

The workshop will also be available for schools and the general public to visit at Science Oxford from 8 February 2013. There is no cost for the workshop or for the training sessions. To book a place on one of these events, please contact Helen at: cze.uk@polarfoundation.org
