Meltdown - Antarctica Under Pressure

The Mercy Seat

Put yourself in the mercy (hot) seat …either as a biotechnology company scientist or a pirate fisherman. Use your enquiry research to prepare yourself for questions from the floor!

Under Pressure

Think about these users of Antarctica … put them where you think they should go in the Venn Diagram. 

Discuss who you think might put the most pressure on Antarctica and who might put the least. How do your answers compare with others?
