Historical explorer Robert Falcon Scott

This biography for year 6 and P7, linking to the topic living things and habitats and biodiversity and interdependence, reveals how Robert Falcon Scott’s Terra Nova expedition laid the groundwork for today’s polar science. In 1912, the Terra Nova team were some of the first people ever to visit Antarctica, so the data they collected about wildlife, weather and even bacteria can be used as a ‘baseline’. Scientists compare today’s findings with those collected on Scott’s expedition to find out how Antarctica has changed in the last 110 years.
