Sailing in Science

The project Velejando na Ciência was created with the goal of bringing children, teenagers and adults of all ages to navigate in activities of environmental education and science literacy associated with the Veleiro ECO. Since 2017, we have participated in several events, such as Volvo Ocean Race stopover and science fairs, using different interactive materials to address themes related to marine ecosystems, and the impact and mitigations of human actions on the oceans. The main goal of this project is encourage a maritime mentality and awareness of the importance of the oceans, as well as transforming the reality of each visitor by increasing their environmental responsibility.
