Schools can sign up to lessons on ‘Exploring Oceans’, delivered via Skype by the MSC team throughout November 2013.
By teaming up with Skype in the classroom, a free global network of 71,000 teachers from 235 countries and territories, the MSC will deliver lessons throughout November covering six key themes; from Habitats and Ecosystems to Sustainability and the Future of our Oceans to schools around the world.
Inspiring and important environmental messages
The MSC's Adele Fash commented on the special Skype lessons: 'Exploring Oceans Month is a fantastic opportunity to inspire children around the globe about the wonderful world of marine animals and of course to help them understand the importance of considering our impact as humans on the environment.'
Schools can register their interest in a particular lesson or find out more at the MSC Skype in the classroom page. Places will be offered on a ‘first come - first served’ basis and only 3 schools will be able to participate for each lesson.
The Skype lessons tie into the MSC’s own Fish and Kids programme. Visit the site for excellent free teaching resources.
