Interinstitutional Group on Antarctic Education:

The Interinstitutional Group in Antarctic Education (GIEA) seeks to promote scientific education, taking advantage of Antarctica as a privileged context for the development of knowledge, skills and learning, promote interdisciplinary and collaborative work experiences, and the construction of inter- and intra-institutional links. One of the central purposes of this Group, made up of representatives from IAU, ANEP (one representative for each Council), the Directorate for the Development of Science and Knowledge (D2C2-MEC), Plan Ceibal, and the Faculty of Sciences – UDELAR, is to include and disseminate Antarctica in the country’s educational agenda as a vehicle to enhance science teaching.
