Do you want your secondary school students to understand how science really works in the lab and how research is carried out? Do you want them to investigate and learn about pressing marine environmental issues? In that case, Virtual Marine Scientist (VMS) is what you need!


The Virtual Marine Scientist project aims to familiarise students (16‐19 years) with the concrete conditions in which scientists work and research is carried out. In this virtual environment, students discover how to design and run experiments in environmental science. Virtual Marine Scientist offers a stimulating context in which to learn about experimental work, including elements of cooperation and problem solving.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks to be a very useful project ... get in touch and give it a try if you are teaching marine science to the target age group.
