What's it like to live and work at a science research station on the highest, driest, coldest, windiest and least populated continent on earth? And what do electronic dance bands, murder mystery parties, and giant puppets made from garbage have to do with it? Karen Hagerman and Lakeside High graduate DJ Jennings spent many seasons, totaling over three years of experience, living and working at McMurdo Station, Palmer Station and the South Pole station as well as deep field camps of Antarctica.  Join DJ and Karen to hear tales of how to stay sane when it is -100° wind chill outside and the sun won't be above the horizon for three more months.

2:30 p.m. - 4:00.p.m.  Film: Encounters at the End of the World. Rated G.
