Students on Ice (SOI) is an award-winning and globally unique educational program. Since 1999, SOI has taken more than 2,500 students, educators, elders, scientists, artists, musicians and leaders from 52 countries around the world on educational expeditions to the Arctic and the Antarctic. SOI believe the Polar Regions are the world’s greatest classrooms. They are the cornerstones of the global ecosystem and tremendous platforms for education in history, culture, science, political, social and environmental issues. The expeditions are inspiring and life-altering for the students involved. The expeditions represent once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for youth to expand their knowledge about the circumpolar world, to gain a global perspective of the Arctic, its wonders, and its present and future challenges. One of the key goals of the pioneering project is to “pass the torch” and give the world’s youth a heightened understanding and respect for our Planet, and the inspiration, knowledge and motivation to protect it.
Since 2015 , YPASM has established partnership with SOI Foundation to provide slots for Malaysian teachers and students to participate in this life changing expedition.
