The project will include the production of a series of 12 films, i.e. popular science video reportages for school children. The films will take the form of “meetings with scientists”. The next episodes of the Baltic Scientist will be a modern way for oceanographers to reach young recipients with knowledge in the field of “science“.

Who will appear in the movies and what will it be about?

Scientists and people related to oceanography will talk about the issues related to the Baltic Sea, their work, research and the devices to carry it out. The camera will also visit a research vessel sailing on the waters of the Baltic Sea.
