During the week 7-11 April 2014 NIMRD “Grigore Antipa“ Constanta opened its doors and was visited by young students from schools in Constanta, and the Constanta and Braila Counties.

The initiative (7–11 April 2014) was dedicated to educational extracurricular activities, within the program entitled “A Different Kind of School: Know More, Be Better!“, and was organized in the frame of the European Union funded FP7 projects PERSEUS and CoCoNET, in collaboration with the Commission for the Protection of the Black Sea against Pollution (BSC), the Balkan Environmental Association (B.EN.A.), the European Environmental Association (EEA) and the Constanta County Prefecture.

The aim of this program is the involvement of all pre-school children/pupils and teachers in activities that respond to diverse interests and concerns of young people, to highlight their talents and abilities in various fields, and to foster their participation in different activities.

Throughout the entire week, the emphasis was put on interactive dialogue and the involvement of pupils in discussions to increase the awareness of issues initiated within the "PERSEUS@SCHOOL" program in the frame of marine environment protection. These educational activities are an excellent opportunity to make marine research popular among the younger generation, offering career guidance and opportunities.
