Meet the Scientists: Arctic Warmth
Wednesday 4 — Thursday 5 April
To stay warm in the Arctic, humans must wear layers of clothes to trap air and keep heat in. For animals that live outdoor all winter, their fur works well, but so does burrowing under the snow to trap air. Drop in to meet scientists who are just back from studying the insulating properties of snow and take part in activities using thermal imaging technology to see how much heat you would lose in the Arctic without the right clothing.
