Visiting Banks Road Primary

FRidge Chief Scientist Alessandro Tagliabue visited Banks Road Primary school on the 5th of December for a special assembly to the whole school. Alessandro spoke to the whole school about what we are trying to achieve during our research expedition and discussed with the children and teachers about how they can engage with our Q&A effort while we are at sea. Thanks to the staff and students for making us so welcome and for having so many great questions about how deep sea volcanoes affect ocean ecosystems by the iron they supply! (special mention for the impressive plankton knowledge!)
