The Agulhas II is the vessel which is heading for the Larsen C ice shelf to explore the huge berg which broke off last year, and carry out other research, with an additional aim of trying to get to the area where Shackleton's ship 'Endurance' sank.

The RGS has created some really excellent resources to accompany the exhibition. These include maps, lesson resources, videos and other media. An impressive effort.
I've also got some copies of the posters which are being sent to all schools by the RGS-IBG.

And if you're interested in this sort of thing, you need to visit the Ice Flows Game website, which explores the physics of ice shelves. Download my resources while you're there :)
