For the second of our Black History Month series, we learned about Matthew Alexander Henson! With much of the USA suffering through the worst snowstorm in years, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to learn more about Matthew Alexander Henson. Matthew Henson was among the first group of people recorded to reach the Polar North in 1908 - 1909 (although later research indicated they were about 60 miles short...but still!). Born in Maryland in 1866, Mr. Henson spent his early life in Washington, DC. From the age of 12, an orphan, he worked as a Cabin Boy where he learned to read and write. He later became a Salesclerk where he met Robert Peary and became his Personal Valet. In his first Arctic expedition, Mr. Henson served as a craftsman and navigator. During these years he studied Inuit language and survival techniques and became an expert in dog-sledding and hunting. Then, in 1909 he, Peary and 4 Inuit men made it to (or at least close to) the North Pole. In 1937, he became the first African American to become a lifetime member of the Explorers Club and in 1948, elevated to the highest level of membership. Henson passed away in 1955 but was posthumously awarded National Geographic's highest honor for exploration and was reinterred, along with his wife at the Arlington National Cemetery, alongside Robert Peary.

That’s not a piece of bacon or a crispy pork rind in a jar- it is a piece of 5,300 year old frozen flesh from the leg of ‘Ötzi the Iceman.’ I was able to hold and film this small sample that is stored at ETH Zurich where @ginocaspari and I brought the wood samples from our dig in Siberia to be c14 dated by the talented Dr. Hajdas. Ötzi was discovered in 1991 by mountaineers in the Alps between Austria and Italy at 10,530 ft elevation. . . Swipe Right to see a modern reconstruction of what he looked like! PC: South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology . . We were able to learn so many interesting things from this organic find from his very rare DNA strain, to his diet of Ibex and herb bread, and the indications of his cause of death from the arrow wound on his shoulder and the bruises on his head. He had 61 soot tattoos and a difficulty processing lactose- just like our Dr. Caspari! (apparently improving). . . . #otzi #iceman #science #research #fieldwork #c14 #mummy #icemummy #dna #ancient #history #switzerland #ethzurich #worldwidewallace #explorersclub #explorer #alps #tyrol #museum #southtyrolmuseumofarchaeology #austria #italy #chalcolithic #chalcolithicperiod #archaeology #anthropology #ötzi #humanrace #tattoos

Repost from #ExplorersClubMember @colinobrady . HOME! This is where it all began. I feel blessed that my parents chose to raise me in the Pacific Northwest with this beautiful playground as my backyard. Today I got back out in the mountains and snow with @jennabesaw for the first time since returning from Antarctica. No matter how far and wide I’ve traveled to chase bigger mountains and dreams I never forget where I came from. It always fills my soul to come home. Long before I ever had the opportunity to spread my wings in the world, when places like Everest and Antarctica were just dreams, I put in countless reps out here forming the foundation of the athlete I am today. If you are dreaming of adventures to far off lands, know that the repetitions in your own backyard, no matter where that is, can form foundation for exponential growth. . . . . . . . . . . . . #colinobrady #photooftheday #explorersclub #theexplorersclub #adventure #exploration

Happy #ExplorersWednesday! 🕵️‍♀️ Every Wednesday, our Explorer's Club teacher, Miss Emily S. from @toddlerstem will share something to help your family explore at home. This week is all about Valentine's Day! ❤️ . A Valentine's sensory soup is super easy to whip up with your kids at home and promotes exploration, sensory play, fine motor skills and focus! And - it’s always AH-mazing how long children can be entertained by simple sensory play! It’s a great activity for when you need to load the dishwasher, make a quick call or start dinner! . All you need is: 💜An explorer’s spirit 💗Pom poms (or cotton balls if you don’t have any laying around) ❤️Red food dye added to water (keep in mind this will stain - omit if this feels scary to you 😉) 💛Anything you have laying around to stir, scoop and dump (the stirring, scooping and dumping is the best part!): measuring cups, drinking cups, large spoons, ramekins, small bowls, old easter eggs, small tupperwares, jars, funnels, etc. 💙Any other fun Valentine’s things you have laying around: we added plastic hearts from the Dollar Tree and cut up straws. . We’ve found the best way to contain the mess with sensory soups is to do them in the bathtub or the sink - or you could do them in a bin on the counter/floor and place a tarp, towel or shower curtain underneath. . Exploration is always #betteratthevillage - so bring your 1-3 year old to our Explorer’s Club at our Grand Rapids location on Thursdays at 9:15! We prepare (and clean up!🙌🏼) several sensory activities, an art process project and send you home with a sensory activity you can do at home! . RSVP link in bio - or if you’re new to The Village, request a trial class pass to come explore 2 of our classes for free! . . . #thevillageofmi #bettertogether #bettertogetheratthevillage #toddlerstem #explorersclub #explorersclubclass #infantclass #toddlerclass #preschoolclass #grmom #grkids #grandrapidskids #grandrapids #grandrapidsmi #grandrapidsmichigan #GRMI #grandrapidsmom #sensoryplay #littleexplorer #littlescientist

When you hike with your two dogs, this is what food breaks often (read: always) look like... As you can tell from this expression, the last thing we ever want to do is share our pepperoni and cheese (even with each other), but these hard working gals deserve a few treats here and there, plus, they’re so good at manipulating MoonShine so 🙄😂 at Grandfather Mountain

NYYC had a wonderful tour of @the_explorers_club yesterday with archivist Lacey Flint. Here is Charles R. Knight’s “Wooly Rhinoceros,” which is particularly fitting given today’s weather forecast. 🦏❄️ Knight created the paintings for the Hall of Dinosaurs at @american_museum_of_natural_his. This painting was done later in his life when he was beginning to lose his eyesight and is thus more impressionistic. #theexplorersclub #explorersclub #woolyrhinoceros #woolyrhino #mammoth #arctic #charlesrknight #paleopainter #diorama #wildlifepainting #hallofdinosaurs #americanmuseumofnaturalhistory at The Explorers Club

Returning To Greenland. Back to the sleepless nights. It seems to be the same story every time it is time for some sort of a possibly tough journey. It is -35 in the area I am heading on Saturday and I am working day and night to get the kit together. I have given Pam my Arctic sleeping bag, so I only have two old, around -10 sleeping bags, we have at least 3 nights on the icecap, so I will have to sleep in my down trousers and jacket to keep comfortable. However, I am thinking about the subject of being a lone parent most of the time, since Pam works and lives in Greenland.

✨👨‍🚀Getting ready for our upcoming #euromoonmars #Moon mission simulation at Hi-Seas habitat in Hawaii near a volcano with the team from @europeanspaceagency #ESA and #ILEWG International Lunar Exploration Working Group. I've just received the Heartbeat monitor I will use as an investigator for two #humanperformance studies during the mission. You will be able to learn more about it starting February 20th on https://www.Facebook.com/Benipidotcom (follow us there as our access to social media will be restricted, but the awesome #astronaut candidate Dr @shawnapandya who will be my ground support will keep you updated 😉) Even though we will use other equipment for our extra vehicular activities, we will have the #amazing opportunity to test the MS1 astronaut suit! "Designed for simulated astronauts by simulated astronauts, and by the brilliant staff and students at the Rhode Island School of Design with assistance from NASA Johnson Space Center, the MS-1 is a high-fidelity analog suit for use in planetary exploration simulations. The MS-1 embodies elements of #NASA ’s new Z2 planetary suit. It is the correct weight (50 lbs/22.7kg). It has (elements of) a hard upper torso. It has bearings in the arms for greater mobility. In the MS-1, you can raise your hands all the way up over your head and give yourself a hug." In the meantime get more at Benipi.com! #Space #explorersclub #explorersclubmember #technology #Cyberpunk #cpaf #future #futurism #prospective #hightech #techwear #fashiontech

After a long adventure into the depths of the #WeddellSea, 104 years later, the @weddellseaexpedition team has arrived at the sinking site of the #Endurance. The Agulhas II, led by Captain Bengu and assisted by Ice Pilot F. Ligthelm, led the team through thick pack ice to this location. Somewhere near their location, #Shackleton's Endurance lies 3038 meters down on the seabed. #WeddellSeaExpedition2019 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #science #scientificresearch #explorersclub #theexplorersclub #ecflag #expedition #southpole #ernestshackleton #endurance #antarctica
