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) takes place. Within the framework of this weekly talent program, two cross-grade groups of primary school children (2nd/3rd and 4th/5th grades, respectively) will dive into the fascinating underwater world of our beautiful blue planet under the direction of Nicole Gmür.
This course is complemented by exciting blog posts from Jackie Egger (head of MérisCool) from the marine research station Mériscope. Here, the children will learn more about the daily life of a marine biologist and have the opportunity to ask questions about the ocean. The course will be rounded off in January 2023 with a visit from Jackie to the young marine researchers in Zumikon.
