A visit from The Institute for Marine Research
ONE International’s Flying Foxes class recently had a visit from the wonderfully proactive eco-organisation ‘Institute for Marine Research’ (IMR). The students, who this term have Climate Change as their environmental topic, were very eager to listen to a fascinating presentation.
The kids were taken out for a walk in the school grounds; were standing in both the shade and in the sun then sat in a hot car and asked to think about why and how certain things were happening and what effect it had on them (and therefore other people) and then extrapolate these findings to the world around them.
Continuing the presentation, the pupils were engaged in discussions around the greenhouse effect and the huge impact rising carbon dioxide levels are having on our ecosystem. Mr. Paul balanced a stick on the sink and set one end on fire, the students then had to make suggestions and discuss the process and its’ results – brilliant!
A big THANK YOU to the Institute for Marine Research for taking the time to inspire and educate the next generation!
