Twitter on ice
The Australian Antarctic Division is bringing back its popular 'Icy Tweets' series for this year's National Science Week!
Antarctic scientists, expeditioners and communicators will be on Twitter sharing stories of work and adventure, and answering your questions.
They will tweet about their current projects, give a glimpse of what they do from day to day, share their Antarctic experience, their passions and why they are committed to Antarctica.
Visit the page from 17 to 21 August to discover the 'tweeter' of the day and follow the conversation.
You don't need a Twitter account to see the tweets appearing throughout the day. You do need one if you'd like to ask a question or join the conversation, and you can also 'follow' us to keep up with Antarctic news, jobs and events. Search for the hashtag #natsciwk for updates and news about other National Science Week activities on Twitter.
