We’re on our way!!

By Jessica // Tuesday 11 Sep // 18:04:53 // 4 Comments // View

Hello all,

 We’re nearly on our way, it’s been an intense four days so far, we’v had lots of workshops about working as a scientist, thinking like an artist, using media and interview techniques and team building exercises. We’ve taken part in the launch event on Sunday, and there are many photos on the site of that, a great event where all the stduents did a performance and then went down to the pier and got into inflatable ribs (big dinghies) and rode up and down the river, including going under Tower Bridge – awesome!! I have met some really inspirational people, most of whom are the students going on the voyage, they are a really intelligent, creative and lively bunch of students who are already working really well together as a team, I am proud to be working with them.

We leave for the Arctic tomorrow and I am sooooo excited!! Probably won’t get much sleep tonight. Will miss everyone I know in the UK, thanks to everyone who has suppoerted me on this wonderful adventure and I will see you all soon!!

I’m really enjoying being with all the team, they’re all awseome & we all have a great laugh together. Yesterday was fab, T4 interviewed us & we’re going on T4 on the 4th November at 12 O’clock,really can’t wait…WOOH! It’s going to look really weird watching myself on T4…YEAH! After that the interviews they followed to Pizza Express and filmed Hayley, Akash, Shona, Jethro & Myself talking to Rick, the (HOT) T4 presenter,he’s great fun! It’s really great being here with everyone from Canada & Germany & it seems everyone has a really cool accent, except me. IT’S NOT FAIR! Suba seems to like my acccent and tries to recreate it in her own way, HILARIOUS!

I can’t wait to hear from you all so please blog me & ask me questions.

You can watch my second video by Wednesday 19th September at 11 O’clock.

I will be LIVE on blog at 11.30,straight after my video is posted.

Please blog before that so i can answer to you by video,..Thank you!

Lots of love, Hope to speak to you in Arctic..Amy =]

Hello all.
It is now 2 days after the official launch of the youth expedition and my last full day in my home country so this should be my final message before I set off into the wilderness on an expedition of a lifetime.

Sunday’s launch was very exciting as it involved a very fast dinghy ride around the Thames after a lot of planning and rehearsing of some performances we had to give to everyone present at the launch. Yesterday (Monday) was the day we used for planning art projects and for doing some interviews with T4 (which i found very nerve-racking). Today we are discussing our science projects and practising blogging for when we are actually on the boat.

So, I hope to hear from you soon. A video of mine will be uploaded on tuesday the 18th and will be available from 11:00 (UK time) and 30 minutes later I will be available to answer questions/take comments.

Thank you for your time,
Jozef Tkocz

Hallo, ich bins Franzi, herzlich Willkommen in meinem Blog. Die letzten Tage waren sehr aufregend, auch wenn ich noch nicht in der Arktis bin. Wir werden hier in London auf den Workshop vorbereitet, besprechen die Kunst und Wissenschafts Projekte mit den Lehrern und Kuenstlern. Am Sonntag gab es hier eine grosse Feier, wir haben uns im Southbankcenter vorgestellt und eine unglaubliche Bootsfahrt auf der Themse gemacht. Alle sind sehr nett und wir koennen es kaum erwarten endlich in die Arktis zu fahren!!!! Wenn ihr Fragen oder Anregungen habt, oder mir Nahrichten schicken wollt, koennt ihr das gerne machen, nur bitte vor Donnerstag Abend. Denn Freitag werde ich live eure Fragen beantworten.
