THE CHALLENGE

The ocean is a continuous ecosystem that we have to understand and preserve. Scientific expertise can raise awareness and educate students ages eight to 16 years old while mobilizing political decision-makers and enabling emerging countries to benefit from new knowledge about the Ocean.

 

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

"The videoconferences with a researcher are an incredible opportunity to work on sustainable development and sciences. To talk to a researcher concretize the theoretical study that we are doing in class.

" The students were extremely excited: they arrived before the class started and stayed totally focus during the lecture".
