Nearly 700 teachers took part in the congress and enthusiastically visited our stand, where they received information about the existence and aims of the BE-POLES cluster and detailed explanation about the competitions Pole-Position and Class@poles. An additional quiz "Are you ready to face the poles?" tested the knowledge of Flemish teachers about the poles.
The many positive reactions proved that this event was very fruitful for communication about polar science in Belgium. Teachers were particularly interested in how to take part to the secondary school competitions about the poles.
