Poster presentation by the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, UK, originally presented at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in 2011. The Polar Museum Education and Outreach program aims to bring the research work of the Scott Polar Research Institute staff to a wide audience. The poster outlines the museum's new strand of learning activities called 'The Cool Club'. Aimed at children aged 7-11 year olds – it is a series of holiday activities that offer children the chance to meet a researcher and learn about what they do in a hands-on creative way. The museum's aim is to inspire young minds by adding a live element to the public outreach program, where children can go behind-the-scenes and engage with on-going, ground-breaking polar research.
