To create science and geography teachers as leaders in education through carrying out science projects in the harshest of conditions in the Polar Regions. This inspires their own teaching, that of their colleagues, and encourages their students to study science and geography; leading to the publication of teaching resources available free to all on this website.

Chris was instrumental in the re-launching of the Foundation as
an educational charity to promote inspirational teaching in the
classroom, The Trustees will greatly miss his thoughtful contributions
and his original input into the development of the Foundation

Sir Vivian Fuchs showed a generation of school children a sense of curiosity, self reliance, self determination and challenge. In his memory, the Fuchs Foundation will inspire future generations by sending young teachers to the Polar Regions to do scientific projects in hostile environments.

Science and Geography are perceived as dull subjects and hard work. The Fuchs Foundation challenges this perception and aims to recreate in young people the sense of excitement, adventure and thirst for knowledge.

No one forgets an inspirational teacher and the Fuchs Foundation believes the key is challenge and experience. Give young teachers the opportunity to break free from the constraints of their normal safe existence and inspire them through expedition work that tests both their mental, physical and emotional resources which will in turn give them a life changing experience and will inspire their teaching for the rest of their career.
