17-11-2017 1000 students investigated life under the ocean surface

The marine communication project Hovedet i Havet “The head in the ocean” has now ended its cruise around the southern coast of Sjælland for this year. More than a 1000 students, kids and adults were onboard the research vessel Aurora where they investigated the life under the ocean surface. In particular, students zoomed in on the captivating seafloor and cable bacteria. 

Students from all over the southern part of Sjælland heard exciting stories about the fascinating cable bacteria and they were very astound that is was not more than five years ago this discovery was published – “it’s crazy how little we know” several of the students expressed.

The seeds from which futures cable bacteria scientists can grow are now planted and who knows – perhaps some of the exciting mysteries the discovery of cable bacteria has led to might in the future be solved by the participants on this year’s cruise with Hovedet i Havet.
