I have teamed up with the educational charity Digital Explorer www.digitalexplorer.com to produce a multi-media schools’ educational resource package 'Frozen Oceans', based on my research in the Arctic with the Catlin Arctic Survey. The resulting free educational resources are currently being used in over 13% of UK secondary schools and 1000 schools internationally.

These educational resources were a finalist for the national Education Resource Awards 2012 in the Best Secondary Resource with ICT category. My work with Digital explorer is currently being used by RCUK as a case study to best practise in pathways to impact. I also regularly give talks to the general public about this research e.g. at the Royal Geographical Society and on the summer festival circuit.
