Aside from Legos and playing outside, this boy is an avid fan of messing around on the computer and penguins as well. When this first grader gets to see his beloved birds in the wild early next month he will be in Antarctica where he will see them waddle on the ice and feed their newly hatched chicks. There will be an internationally known explorer and filmmaker who will be joining him and his parents on a journey to the Antarctic Peninsula.

Seldom do children his age travel to such an icy continent as this one. This boy is not the only one who is ecstatic for the trip but also his friends. Also coming on the trip are all of his classmates explaining such jubilation. Through an Internet linkup, they will be able to join the expedition without incurring many costs. In fact, students across the country will be able to view live video coverage of the trip.

An accessible site offers live question and answer forums as part of the pilot youth program. To heighten the learning experience, teachers at his school are planning grade level activities that will build on the boy's dispatches. For the first graders they will tackle the weather, geology goes to the fourth graders, and fifth graders get forces in motion.

The family will be engaged in much adventure. Such a trip will be great for the boy who is a nature lover and his mother also said that her role her will be the voice of reason. Just a little motivation can go a long way in helping you achieve your dreams, said the boy.

A webcast is somewhat of an everyday thing. Apart from being the first to ice bike 250 miles across Antarctica and the first American to ski to the South Pole, this explorer will also experience this kind of interaction with children for the first time. Mainly for adults were their trips there since 1999 which included pursuits that were scientific in nature plus extreme skiing. With every trip that he took, he acquired much knowledge that he wanted to share with the children who were the best recipients. Deciding on the kids' program was done early last year.

The timing couldn't be better as Antarctica possibly because of the March of the Penguins movie has become the new hot destination for adventure. You could say that fate brought the boy's mother and the explorer together. Hearing about his website from a mutual friend was the way that she regained contact with the 42 year old explorer with whom she attended a local university some years ago.

After the boy made his first live dispatch in the starting point of Buenos Aires, Argentina the 14 day expedition went to the south. They and travelers originating from Toronto boarded a 100 passenger cruise ship that went through the Drake Passage and the Antarctic Peninsula. You could say that the 600 mile, 30 hour ride could have been the most perilous part of their entire journey due to extreme sea weather.

It was in crossing the Drake Passage that they were able to witness dolphins, elephant seals, and whales. Once the vessel reaches the peninsula, the group will embark on rubber boats and visit beaches and bays that are inaccessible at other times of the year due to ice. Besides visiting scientific research stations, they will also visit a number of penguin rookeries. The location of the colony of emperor penguins, made famous in the March of the Penguins and is the largest among the 17 species of penguins in Antarctica, is also known by the explorer.
