Welcome to Scott’s Hut, Cape Evans

Welcome to Scott’s Hut expedition base at Cape Evans, Antarctica. It's really good to have you as part of our team. I'm the expedition’s storekeeper and I'll be helping you get ready for your first sledging trip.

It’s a really tough environment out there... so you'll need to think hard about what you're going to take with you. We won't see you for several weeks, so you'll need to make sure you’ve got what you need to survive in Antarctica.

Go inside now so you can get started - you don’t have long before you need to set off with the team. You will go into the hut through the Cold Porch, which gives us some protection from the bitingly cold wind and stops too many drafts from getting into the hut itself.

Click on the button to the right to be able to enter the Cold Porch.

If you have a teacher with you, they might want to click on the snowflake at the top left-hand corner of the screen to learn more about resources available to them.

Now let’s get started, there's no time to lose......
