ASE is pleased to announce that the Pedagogical Sailboat project has been selected for funding from the European Union under the ERASMUS + program.
ASE will coordinate the project, which aims to develop an innovative educational tool (The Pedagogical Sailboat) that will create a tangible link between education, scientific research and sailing.
The project will enable secondary school students and teachers to work on the field of sampling microplastics on the sea surface onboard a sailboat.
The consortium includes a leading research centre that will provide the necessary scientific backing for the project, a Spanish regional public administration, and different secondary school.
