An Antarctic Exploration

Wednesday 04 April 2018

The Polar Museum at the Scott Polar Research Institute contacted Premm in regards to creating a children’s’ activity leaflet for families to use to follow a self-guided trail around the museum.

The trail focuses on the so-called ‘Heroic Era of Exploration’, in particular making connections to the collections relating to the Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. The leaflet allows the user to create their own ‘Shackleton’ inspired journey through a variety of activities, from drawing your own crew to creating an origami ship from the leaflet paper itself!

This was a fascinating project utilising old photographs and items from the exploration and making it both interesting and engaging for a young audience of 7–11 year olds. We had to think about the way the information was displayed to both be clear to follow but also allow for the fold lines to be apparent in the background for the final boat origami task.

The Scott Polar Research Institute is a world-leading research and information centre for the study of the polar and cold regions. To find out further work they do please visit their website.
