STEAMSummer School 2020

 

Even though the oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, humans have only explored a small fraction of this vast ecosystem. This summer, dive in and discover a hidden world of coral reefs overflowing with brightly coloured fish, as well as deeper, darker depths concealing mysterious creatures. Learn the forces behind the ocean’s turbulent weather, and experiment with technology that can help to preserve this precious aquatic ecosystem for years to come.
