Australian schoolchildren will be able to video chat with Antarctic expeditioners as part of a new program being run by the Australian Antarctic Division.

A series of live video chats will be held over the next few months.

The first two events will take place on 30 July, at 11:30am and 1:30pm AEST, with expeditioners at Casey research station.

Students will be able to talk to the station leader and staff who keep the station running over the long, cold winter.

Expeditioners will show and talk about where they live, their work, and the details of their day-to-day life including what they eat, the weather, wildlife, transport and what they do in their free time. 

Further chats will be held with Casey and Davis research stations on 20 August and 18 September.

To register for the first events on 30 July, and to stay informed about the remainder of the series, visit the DART Connections website
