OCEAN EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR FRENCH STUDENTS
STATION MARINE DE CONCARNEAU
Station Marine de Concarneau is the world’s oldest marine biology station still in operation. Established in 1859, the facility is dedicated to advancing marine research and connecting the public to the marine environment.
In the same way that explorers and scientists make world-changing discoveries, we believe that all of us have the capability to make a positive impact on the world. Our partnership with Station Marine de Concarneau will reinforce the educational activities at the centre’s Marinarium, collaborating with the Education Ministry, school teachers, local NGOs and researchers from the station to develop new educational kits that will inspire youth to take local action that will benefit the environment.
HOW ARE WE HELPNG?
- Supporting onsite educational workshops, field trips and in-classroom science projects.
- Improving accessibility for regional schools – staffing year-round educational programs and providing transportation for schools participating in activities.
- Encouraging citizen science with partner and local NGO, Bretagne Vivante, through a ‘Living Beaches’ participatory science program that studies local shorelines.
- Inspiring students to discover new ways of communicating their understanding of marine science, through the Young Reporters of Arts, Science and Environment program, where they spread their messages through art that is later showcased at the Marinarium.
