The 2014/2015 school year has just ended and the first phase of the MEDITES project as well.

38 classes run the completion of the second phase of the MEDITES project, in Nice

The MEDITES project (Méditerranée Diffusion des Techniques et des Sciences 2014/2014), labelled “Investissements d’Avenir”, consists in bringing scientific culture to young people of the Alpes Maritimes and the Var departements, in France.

The second edition of the ‘adopt a float’ day was held on Friday June 12 at the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche - Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche (CNRS-UPMC).

On Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th February 2015, the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche/OOV received about thirty middle and high school teachers from the vicinity of Nice. The « mon océan & moi » team offered a training course covering a wide range of topics such as the observation of the seas and oceans, acidification and plankton.

Qikiqtarjuaq is a small Inuit village, lying 100 km North of the Arctic Polar Circle, in the Nunavut territory (Canada). During 5 months, this village of 470 inhabitants accommodated more than 50 scientists from around the world. The main objective of the Greenedge project is to understand the functioning of the Arctic ecosystem.

In late June, the students involved in the « adopt a float » project will meet at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche-sur-Mer to present their work carried out during this school year. Numerous presentations are announced and promise a « colorful » day: oral communications, videos, posters, hands-on activities, poems and songs …


Be creative, share your work in class and stage the environmental changes that are affecting our oceans!

« mon océan & moi » invites school classes/groups to share their work on a theme related to the ocean by writing and acting a shadow play as well as producing a video of the show. This video will allow them to take part in the in the contest.

On April 18th 2014, just before leaving for Easter holidays, students from the middle-school Paul Arène (Peymeinade – France) welcomed Martina, Raphaëlle, Nicolas and Orens. A presentation on plankton and its role in the marine ecosystem introduced basic knowledge in biological oceanography.

La journée "adopt a float : les collégiens présentent leurs travaux" a eu lieu vendredi 20 juin dans les locaux de l'Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche-sur-Mer (UMR CNRS-UPMC).
