Voices with Antarctica

The Flipgrid team is thrilled to announce a unique opportunity for your students to connect with a scientist in one of the most remote places on Earth: Antarctica. Join the new Voices with Antarctica grid today!

We've partnered with Laura Goetz, a marine biologist based at Palmer Station on Anvers Island, Antarctica. Laura will be using Flipgrid in two ways. She'll be regularly posting videos in her Adventure Journal topic which will provide a unique glimpse into her life at the bottom of the globe. She'll also be posting weekly discussion topics for your students to share their voices with her and students around the world. In the first topic, released today, she asks students to share their story and what they are passionate about. New discussion topics will be released weekly throughout the month of October.

  • October 3: Topic One - What's Your Passion?
  • October 10: Topic Two (announced soon)
  • October 17: Topic Three (announced soon)
  • October 24: Topic Four (announced soon)
  • October 31: Goodbyes from around the world

Please take a moment to visit Laura's grid and share with your students! We hope your students enjoy this educational and fun experience!
