The Laboratory of Marine Research (LABIMAR) will start for the second consecutive year an intensive program of guided tours and workshops that aims to disseminate science and research carried out at the University of Cádiz between students in kindergarten, primary and secondary (ESO and Baccalaureate) throughout the Cadiz province.
The activity aims to bring schoolchildren to the laboratory located in the emblematic Castillo de San Sebastián in the city of Cadiz. There workshops related to marine biodiversity to show the importance of conservation of the marine environment will be developed and will be announced the essential processes in the functioning of this ecosystem.
Thus, visitors will have a guided explanation of facilities at LABIMAR, a multimedia presentation and a practical activity, which will vary according to the group and age. It can pass from microscopic observation of marine organisms, to the study of specific processes using laboratory techniques. This business plan has the support of the International Campus of Excellence of the Sea CEIMAR, and is included in the IV Plan of dissemination of Science and Knowledge lidded by the Unit of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC + i ) of the University of Cadiz.
