Extreme Environment days

We have worked with a number of schools to provide school-based sessions about extreme environments. The sessions involve practical and theoretical activities, and are provided across the age ranges. This allows children to be hands on to see how difficult some tasks are, such as tying your boots while wearing a thick pair of over-mittens.

We also include information on rescues and how a rescue team operates, and make use of equipment such as casualty bags and stretchers. This shows participants how time consuming and involved a mountain or cave rescue can be.

What the session includes

  • What is an extreme environment?
    • darkness
    • altitude
    • hot
    • cold
  • How do we adapt to these environments?
  • Living and operating in extreme environments
  • What is a mountain or cave rescue team?
  • Is mountain rescue different in different parts of the world?
