The video was developed by Katrin Wollny-Goerke / meeresmedien and Kiel Science Factory and was produced by Tatja B. GmbH, as part of the Marine Mammals Project, funded by the EU under the Grant Agreement No. 710708. Thanks to NDR Landesfunkhaus Schleswig-Holstein, Uli Kunz and Mehltretter GmbH who provided some footage.
The seven minutes video podcast gives a first insight in the Marine Mammals Project, its targets and skills. In short Interviews, some of the project members – experts for marine mammals science and research as well as experts for education and educational research – explain the steps how teachers and students are introduced to the exciting world of science and different research topics. Some examples are shown, like Workshops, hands-on experiments and a wide range of teaching materials. The video also visualizes the role of non-school learning locations and scientific experts from research institutes within the project. Marine mammals like whales, porpoises and seals were chosen as key animals, as ambassadors for the ocean – which is also illustrated with some very attractive film sequences in this video podcast.
