Coasts for Kids – a transdisciplinary science communication effort

Coasts for Kids is the result of a transdisciplinary team effort co-ordinated by Irene Delgado-Fernandez (Edge Hill University) and involving teachers, artists, and coastal scientists from universities in the UK, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, and Mexico. The video series was developed in partnership with Sefton Council and Southport Eco Visitor Centre and was narrated by school children aged 6-8 years old from the Merseyside area. Join us for 1 hour as we show you the science behind the videos. Explore with us why is it important to empower kids (and adults) to understand some of the complex interactions regulating coastal dynamics at a variety of temporal and spatial scales, and to trigger awareness and interest on coasts from an early age.

Irene Delgado-Fernandez is Professor of Coastal Geomorphology at Edge Hill University where she started as Lecturer in 2012 following postdoctoral work at the University of Ulster (Northern Ireland) and PhD work at the University of Guelph (Canada). She is interested on coastal evolution and modelling, and specialises on coastal dune dynamics, beach-dune interactions, coastal aerodynamics and aeolian sediment transport.

Suitable for – All ages but with a focus ages 12+ (it includes scientific material).

TIME: 5:15pm – 6:15pm, Tuesday 2nd November
