Ask researcher Snorri about the crab

Time: Tuesday 27 September at 18.00
Location: in front of Stortanken i Atlanterhavsparken

The event is for anyone who is curious about the marsupial crab and life in the sea. Based on questions from the audience, we join you on an exciting journey about the life of the marsupial crab. The event is free. Registration takes place at the ticket office upon arrival.

Snorre Bakke is an associate professor at NTNU in Ålesund and has studied the biology of marsupial crabs in his doctorate. Together with two co-authors, he has recently published the book "THE CRAB - a biological and cultural historical portrait", which provides a broad coverage of the pocket crab's life and its importance to us as a fishery and food resource.

Seminar for teachers in upper secondary schools: exploration, interdisciplinarity and sustainability in practice

Time: Monday 26 September at 15.00-17.00
Location: Breisundet food workshop i Atlanterhavsparken

The event is a collaboration between Atlanterhavsparken and the University of Volda.

In this seminar, teachers can take part in a science center activity developed by Atlanterhavsparken and the University of Volda. "The whole fish - can we taste our way to a (slightly) more sustainable future?" is an interdisciplinary and exploratory communication program where students can explore using all their senses. In the seminar, the participants get to experience the activity in practice, including taste tests, and the team behind the workshop will describe how they have thought and worked to develop the scheme. They will also present some of the research related to the project, and there will be a discussion afterwards where experiences and ideas can be shared.

Academics responsible for the event from Volda University College: Erik Fooladi, Beate Krøvel Humberset and Oda Heidi Bolstad, Department of Science, HVO.

For registration:

NB: Limited places, maximum 25 participants (first registered gets first place).
