The Arc mobile classroom has been designed to raise young people’s awareness of aquaculture. We are one of the first schools in Europe to participate in this programme. The truck-sized classroom is fully equipped to provide students with an interactive and engaging experience with large displays, VR-headsets and hands-on group experiences. We learned about aquaculture, explored its role in food production and in preserving the environment, and discover how it affects our local community.
Bord Iascaigh Mhara has developed the ARC as part out its involvement in the EU Commission Farmed in the EU Project. Farmed in the EU aims to highlight the benefits of aquaculture as an industry that produces fresh sustainable seafood, creates employment and helps sustain rural communities.
