Take part in the system Explorers and Citizens of the Seas

School year 2021-2022

Aimed at secondary school classes, this scheme is supported by the Academic Delegation for Artistic and Cultural Education (DAAC) of the Académie de Nice, and is built and implemented in partnership with the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and the Explorations of Monaco.

Through thematic workshops (mammal sounds, protected Mediterranean species, coral) carried out at the Museum and based on the missions of the Explorations de Monaco, the educational projects developed by the classes will be in line with the joint objectives of the partners:

  • cultural and scientific openness (methodology and scientific approach, history of science, scientific writing, storytelling, exploration log, measurements, instrumentation, data processing, jobs, meeting professionals, etc.)
  • ocean exploration, eco-citizenship, sustainability science approach, international dimension of research
  • understanding of the environmental, political and educational stakes of a scientific exploration campaign over one or two school years and comparing it with historical and current campaigns.
