Exploring the Sea with the Oceanographers

On November 9th ,the Hellenic Oceanographers Association met the whole student force of Doukades’ elementary school of Corfu. Unfortunately, during our visit, there was a blackout and therefore we were not able to conduct all the experiments as planned. Thankfully the battery of the pc that we carried along lasted long enough for us to manage to deliver both the presentations that were scheduled for the day, regarding the marine environment and the science of Oceanography. The students having taken part in previous acts (shoreline cleanup) were already familiar with the concept and the importance of environmental education and anything but lacked knowledge when it comes to the marine environment. Due to the aforementioned blackout we focused more on the conversation post the presentation, that clearly showcased the students’ high levels of awareness on marine environment issues for one  as well as  the valuable contribution of their teachers on the matter .
