Our partners

With a mission to construct an alternate vehicle to pursue research in Antarctica, we are grateful to collaborate with various companies and institutes. Their support allows Team POLAR to continue to connect with students, researchers and industry. The names for the tiers of support are insipired by penguin names and their order reflects the height of those species. Thus, the levels are in decreasing order of height: Emperor, Gentoo, Chinstrap, Adélie.
