Antony Jinman is the founder and CEO of Education through Expeditions (ETE), a social enterprise set up to inspire young people to learn more about the world around them and follow their dreams. In the next few days Antony will be leaving the UK and heading to the South Pole to fulfill his childhood dream of reaching both the North and South Pole and becoming one of only a handful of Britons to achieve this feat. He will arrive on the ice on the 23rd November and will set off on his solo journey across Antarctica and will be picked up at the South Pole almost two months later after skiing for a grueling 730 miles!
Antony is embarking on this expedition not only to achieve his own lifetime goal but as a means to inspire and educate children. We are lending a DeLorme inReach SE to Antony so that his expedition will be completely interactive and school children from all over the country will be able to ask him questions and track his progress online. The DeLorme inReach SE can send and receive messages and tracking signals from anywhere in the world and is designed for maximum durability in harsh environments, making it the perfect travel companion for Antony on his solo expedition.
Antony wants to promote healthy nutrition and lifestyle in schools and has created a variety of activities and resources to teach children about diet, exercise and human biology in an interactive way. ETE’s research has proven that interactivity can have a significant impact on classroom learning, achievement and pupil aspiration. The expedition will also give Antony an opportunity to teach people about the environment of the South Pole and potentially inspire a future generation of explorers!
We would like to wish Antony the best of luck on his expedition and look forward to watching his progress online.
