    Participate in the new Education for Climate Coalition challenge - "Be a scientist! Mapping climate change at seas & coast" - to experience science & research and mapping data from behind the scenes of the European Atlas of the Seas!

    The Education for Climate Coalition and the European Atlas of the Seas are inviting schools to take part in a new challenge, "Be a scientist! Mapping climate change at seas & coast".

    This challenge takes you on a scientific wave ride:

    Become familiar | concept experience

    1. Let's play a boat race within the European Atlas of the Seas to immerse ourselves.

    2. Let's re-play - you have the opportunity to play and repeat the boat race in class in a challenge against other classes to reflect playfully on issues of marine geography and environmental sustainability.

    Experiment | develop

    3. Let's create our own map collectively and select the topic the map shall cover around climate change

    4. Let's be scientists - What data do we need for this topic map and how can we collect it (tools & measurement?)

    Explore | field work

    5. Let's explore, collect and report to bring together insights for our map!

    6. Let's create the community map based on the reported data - and re-play!

    We are looking for 10 teachers as volunteers who would love taking their classroom on a wild science ride.

    Interested? Make sure that you enroll under the conditions that you :

    • are able to join the online preparation workshop on 10 June 2022;
    • are willing to enter the boat race challenge online on 21 June 2022 June in the morning with your class.
