This Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Action project aims to co-create effective ways to make outside-the-classroom education a reality and fight plastic pollution by connecting people, creating a learning platform, and piloting the OTTER Lab methodology in European countries. We are a network of 8 organizations that want to make learning outside the classroom a tangible reality. By making science fun, we believe students will be more conscious about our planet's sustainability while gaining cognitive, affective, social, and behavioural skills.
Within this project, the Institute for Science Education and Communication (ISEC) is responsible for producing a comprehensive assessment of the processes and outcomes of the project using a mixed methods approach. The objective of the outcome assessment is to determine the effects of education outside the classroom activities on students' acquisition of scientific knowledge and 21st-century skills and to determine the design characteristics and dimensions of effective models of partnerships between the formal and informal education sectors.

The project aims to train scientists to engage the public with scientific issues, concepts, and actions related to climate change/crisis through different media and spaces: popular science magazines, newspapers, websites, social media, TV, radio, TEDx talks, science festivals, etc.

This pilot project synergises science education and communication with social psychology and public health expertise. Its goal is to craft an interactive narrative centred around Aletta Jacobs, a pioneering Dutch female scholar. The narrative is connected with captivating and immersive VR imagery and multimedia resources, fostering a more profound understanding. This approach enhances the connection with Aletta's journey. It allows us to perceive her not as a distant figure but as a relatable and inspiring woman with a deeply personal commitment to human rights.
