Sefton kids and Council staff help coastal scientists make a splash with YouTube channel
Sefton Council's press release helped spreading the word on the C4K series, with a focus on the excellent narrations by school children in the Merseyside area and the project's ability to empower kids to understand the complex language used in coastal science.
These excellent set of educational resources is ideal for primary school teachers and pupils looking for information on how storm waves and winds affect beaches and dunes, the impact of climate change on our coastlines, and community adaptation to sea level rise.
