Shackleton’s Experience

Sir Ernest Shackleton was a British explorer who was one of the principle figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Using a meta story, this learning & development package will take you on a journey based around this famous explorer.


The Situation:

Several months ago, your group abandoned its ship and watched with great disappointment as the wreckage and remaining supplies plunged to the icy depths. You have been struggling to survive on the pack ice, and as the food dwindles, many plans have been discussed as to what would be the best course of action.

On Shackleton’s first expedition to Antarctica, he left behind some food and an emergency transmitter on Paulet Island. Shackleton has hand-picked your group to make the dangerous trek over the ice and open waterways to Paulet Island, to find a way for the entire crew to be rescued.


During this journey you will face tasks such as:


    • Cargo Lift
    • Mountain Top
    • The Frozen Lake
