On board of the Milieuboot!
On Tuesday 18th October, our Middle School students had an educational boat trip along the River Scheldt in Antwerp with ‘De Milieuboot’. This ‘Environment Boat’ is a facility that aims to teach youngsters more about the biodiversity that can be found in and around this important river. There is also a laboratory on board, where they did several experiments on its water quality. They learnt why and for who the river is important, what possible causes are of pollution and what the implications are for the biodiversity.
