Six students were encouraged to "walk on water"
yesterday, in an attempt to rescue them from
a melting ice island in Hudson's Bay.
Polar bear simulations were being discussed, as the missing solution.
Enactment involved swimming in the near frozen water for more than
twenty minutes to reach the shore line.
It has not been determined whether the students remaining at midnight would be airlifted out via the Canadian Coastguard.
Only one student ventured into the water, but was forced to return to an ice-flow.
The challenge was voluntarily attempted by the students, as a method of studying the potential for problem solving in extreme environmental conditions.
Solutions for returning to shore were not limited in any way.
Further postings will reveal all the results of students' undertakings, and their end positions.
