HIELO
Bitácora de expedicionaria antártica
Spanish Edition

Explored by great adventurers like Roald Amundsen and Robert Scott, who staged a challenge of epic dimensions to see who would first get to the geographic South Pole, this incredible white land is still a great mystery that fascinates scientists and travelers.

Posada-Swafford, with the patience of someone who collects stories and anecdotes, useful data and legends, hundreds of notes and objects (stones, penguin feathers, expedition insignia, etc.), built a unique log filled with insightful reflections about the icy continent, a landscape that threatens to disappear due to global warming.

This lovely book is the result of a deep exploration of Antarctica, both literary and historical, scientific and geographical, aboard a luxury cruise, Navy frigates and scientific expeditions with several nations. Because of the beauty of his reflections and his careful design this will undoubtedly be one of the great books of Colombian adventurers.

The Proyecto Ciencia Aventura is an initiative created by the Fundación Omar Dengo in Costa Rica. It proposes a learning experience, entirely based on the novels Juntos en la Aventura (formerly called Adventurers of Science) whose fundamental purpose is to stimulate scientific thinking and interest in science in elementary and secondary students. Use research, literature and narration digital as entry points to the understanding of complex concepts andproblems related to spatial exploration.

Reviews and concretes the understanding of concepts of physics, mathematics, chemistry and biology that underlie the understanding of astronomy and particularly the dynamics of space. In addition, the designed learning experiences stimulate the critical and creative construction of hypotheses and plausible explanations, based on scientific knowledge frameworks.

In this sense, curiosity, interrogation and construction are proposed as learning routines that are validated through the elaboration of spatial trajectories and trajectories that are produced with the support of the WorldWide Telescope software. The project has the support of scientific journalist Ángela Posada-Swafford and a network of national and international scientists specialized in different disciplines of Science. They will support the questions of students and teachers with the desire to favor more current and deeper learning.
