Science Outreach from Black Sea Young Ambassadors during Green Week

In a concerted effort to promote environmental consciousness and scientific curiosity, the National Institute for Marine Research and Development “Grigore Antipa” (NIMRD) joined hands with students from the “Tudor Arghezi” Năvodari Gymnasium School. This collaborative endeavor, held on March 28th, 2023, was part of the educational program “Green Week”.

Steering this collaborative initiative were Romanian Black Sea Young Ambassadors Nicoleta Damir and Elena Bișinicu. Their dedication to promoting scientific awareness and environmental stewardship was palpable as they guided students through the various activities, facilitating a dynamic and educational engagement.

During the event, young ambassadors fostered a deeper understanding of our precious marine ecosystems and the impact of stressors upon them. They also featured engaging laboratory experiments, enabling the participating students to actively explore scientific concepts and marine phenomena. Furthermore, the event provided an exclusive opportunity to witness firsthand the work equipment employed within NIMRD’s Department of Oceanography and Coastal Engineering. This immersive experience shed light on the tools and methodologies employed by researchers to unravel the intricacies of our oceans.
