The role of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean in maintaining the climate and living conditions on the planet has yet to be discovered by the non-specialized public. The polar regions strongly influence oceanic and atmospheric interactions and climate change.
Expanding the media universe on Antarctica and the Southern Ocean makes it possible to awaken perception and awareness of their importance and contributes to forming an Antarctic mentality and oceanic culture. This project implements a transmedia system linked to a virtual science museum to engage different audiences, expanding their scientific literacy. A virtual museum will be developed with 3D modelling, virtual objects of different natures (such as virtual objects, applications, simulations) and digital transmedia (such as podcasts, social media, books, distance learning courses, and children’s university) for scientific dissemination to different audiences.
