Island to Ice 2011 is an Antarctic themed educational blog that tracks the adventures of scientists from Ward Island, Corpus Christi, Texas to the frozen continent of Antarctica.  Island to Ice links Antarctic researchers from the Harte Research Institute (HRI) (a part of Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi) and Texas A&M University to students from Texas, other parts of the USA and New Zealand, Anyone is welcome to participate by reading the journal and asking questions.

This project allows students to interact with Antarctic researchers, by asking questions by email, viewing online journal entries written in Antarctica and through classroom visits prior to and after the trip.  Island to Ice 2011 is a continuation of earlier Island to Ice projects that were run by University of Texas Marine Science Institute researchers and the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 projects that were run by Harte Research Institute researchers.
