CIIMAR at school
This is a multiapproach project aimed at consolidating thematic networks of knowledge transfer and sharing of resources between CIIMAR, school students, teachers and other professional educators. This is done by: A) creating and/or consolidating active partnerships with interaction and continuous updating among partners, B) involving university students to perform experimental activities in schools, promoting the interplay within the education system, C) bringing scientists to schools to give lectures within their field of expertise, and D) assisting teachers with sharing of resources and free experimental protocols through a webbased platform containing readymade materials with specialist consultation. For its scope and aim the proposal fits into the goals of the Ciência Viva project Knowing the Ocean, a navigation chart for Ocean Literacy.
