Global Hands On Ocean pilot

Friday, April 20th, 2018

How do you combine the fields of science and arts, where both subjects are equal and contributive to the learning process? How do you get young people to embody new, scientific knowledge? How do you teach young people about the ocean and the arts, without art being “just a fun method” of learning? How do […]

The DNA workshop

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Working with three colleagues from the University, we started a two-day WASO workshop on DNA at a high school today. Combining arts and science. So how do you make art around the DNA-theme?

Seaplastic, day 3

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Visiting the western-most part of the island (Hiskjo), where we found some surprisingly clean beaches! Beach-combing for the hard-core! A beautiful sight: this cannister says: Don´t throw away! To be used by all of us for beach-cleaning. Back at the workshop, cleaning today´s findings. Catch of the day is the little seahorse 🙂 Elizabeth started […]

Sea-plastic art, day 2

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

Well, we finished washing the trash today, at least what we have so far. And when Elizabeth started color-sorting the plastic, the beauty appears pretty much straight away. But we some really cool plans for this plastic. It is no longer waste. IT will become the coolest fish on this side of the Gulf-current! 😉 Photos […]
