On Oct. 19, participants will enjoy Life on the Ice, course number PSD 6062 100. Behind all the scientific research that takes place in Antarctica, there is a crew of support workers that make life in such inhospitable conditions possible. While researchers may spend only a few weeks in Antarctica, many support workers will live there for much longer, including the harsh winter months. Kendall Nickle spent 30 months living and working at McMurdo State in Antarctica from 2002-2005. He started and operated the first American wastewater treatment plant, ending the practice of dumping untreated waste into the ocean in one of the most pristine areas of the planet. He will talk about his experience living and working at McMurdo State and experiencing Antarctic wilderness first hand while showing his collection of photographs.
The “lunch and learn” sessions will be held at Iowa Valley Grinnell, room 109. Cost of this class is $12, which includes lunch. Registrations can be completed by calling Iowa Valley Continuing Education at 1-800-284-4823 or 641-752-4645.
One more opportunity will be offered this fall to enjoy lunch and entertainment. On Nov. 7, the final lunch and learn session will be Afternoon Tea. Additional information can be found online at www.IowaValley.com.
