Also in 2022, as part of the “After Life” activities under the Life project, LIFE SEPOSSO collaborated with several schools as part of the Posidonia oceanica education project.
The appointments with schools were as follows:
- 11 April 2022: participated IC ARISTIDE LEONORI PLESSO VIA FUNI 81, with two classes (40 pupils)
- 2 May 2022: participated IC VIA PADRE SEMERIA (PLESSO MOSCATI), with two classes (36 pupils)
- 3 May 2022: IC FANELLI MARINI (PLESSO MARINI) participated, with two classes (38 pupils)
- 9 May 2022: IC FRASCATI (PLESSO SCIARRA) participated, with three classes (40 pupils)
Together with the Institutes’ teachers, ISPRA researchers presented an informal lesson to the first-year middle school students on the biology of Posidonia oceanica, the importance of the meadows on marine-coastal ecosystems, and the importance of their protection by all citizens, accompanying the explanations with thematic videos and video cartoons specially made for the students, at the end of which some aspects were discussed in depth with the students.
In addition, themed games were proposed to learn the concepts while having fun, and a workshop was set up to allow children to observe plants, beached leaves, matte, egagropil and Posidonia oceanica olives up close.
The activities were proposed using the DIdactic Kit specifically designed by Life SEPOSSO for schools, which can be freely downloaded and used from here: http://lifeseposso.eu/?page_id=8844
