When the Classroom becomes a Research Submarine

For the first time, from August 2022 until February 2023, a joint project of a primary school in Zumikon (Switzerland) and MérisCool (Canada, Switzerland) took place. Within the framework of this weekly talent program, two cross-grade groups of primary school children (2nd/3rd and 4th/5th grades, respectively) dived into the fascinating underwater world of our beautiful blue planet under the direction of Nicole Gmür.

This course was complemented by exciting posts from Jackie Egger (head of MérisCool) from the marine research station Mériscope. Here, the children learnt more about the daily life of a marine biologist and had the opportunity to ask questions about the ocean. The course was rounded off in January 2023 with a visit from Jackie to the young marine researchers in Zumikon.
