Explore aquatic biodiversity

The school project VIRTUE is a great way for educators and students to learn about and measure biodiversity of water environments through the accumulation of animals and algae on CD-shaped discs (biofouling). 

Why are we doing this?

  • Bring real-life context to the curriculum through a Project-Based Learning approach
  • Sparks curiosity - students are excited to solve problems and ask questions

How are we doing this?

  • Deploy discs in aquatic ecosystems
  • Analyse biofouling organisms using online educational support
