Lead institution:

CIIMAR, University of Porto – Portugal

CIIMAR at School aims to contribute to education and ocean literacy (source-to-sea approach) and awaken young people’s curiosity about marine sciences and professions, bridging the scientific and school communities.

Its online platform offers a set of experimental lab and field protocols or science activities for formal education and non-formal contexts (basic and secondary students), and a range of lectures, free of charge. The offer is in Portuguese to support the national education community and those of the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP), who regularly download the resources offered. It supports the Blue School and the national regional centre of the OTGA, producing certified lifelong training for school teachers and educators. It contributed to the “Ocean Literacy for All: a Toolkit” with hands-on experimental activities. Likewise, it originated the UNESCO OceanExpert Chair (University of Porto) and is the open-access resources platform linked to the Chair.
