EVREST Science Club – Dissemination activities

EVREST Science Club on Task 6.3. Dissemination to the general public

The EVREST Science Club has already started at several schools of Tavira Municipality, targeting students of the 4th grade.
Along three sessions consisting of two hands-on activities in the classroom and one fieldtrip, students will be able to better understand Ria Formosa’s barrier islands system, from the sediment to the habitat concept.
The first and ongoing session, called “Grão a Grão, enche-se a Praia do Barril!” focus on the sediment composition of the saltmarsh and the dune system, and includes a brief characterization of the fauna and flora.
The second theorical-practical session “Duna à vista!” will soon start; its main theme will be dunes formation and their role on shoreline protection (together with the saltmarsh).
