Arctic Transitions - presentation today Oct. 7, 2008

French American School of NY in Mamaroneck
8 AM sharp the auditorium was full of 6th through 12th grade students interested in learning about the PAX ARCTICA Expedition. Luc moderated the presentation with Flaam and Aïnhoa offering personal insights and memories about their month long experience. The slide show brought plenty of ohhh and ahh’s especially when photos of animals flashed up on the screen. Fleur Desazars said, “Ca m'a fait rêver”. (It made me dream.) Students seemed captivated and there were many specific questions about the environment. After the presentation one young student timidly asked Flaam “did you see Santa Claus”?

Here is the link:
