Ice Age costume characters Sid and Buck are in Antarctica right now learning about Antarctica New Zealand’s work, and life at Scott Base. They’re experiencing the middle of winter and 24 hours darkness. The characters will be starring in the video series to help young New Zealanders learn more about the frozen continent.
Through the video series Sid and Buck will discover why there’s no sun in winter, what causes an aurora, why scientists monitor the weather and the various pieces of equipment used, and why fire is a huge risk. The characters will explore day-to-day life of the staff living at Scott Base, including the importance of sleep routines, short showers for water conservation, extreme cold weather clothing, and why recycling is important.
