Starting on the 12th of January 2005, 2000 Flemish high school students embarked on the ‘Zeeleeuw’. The oceanographic research vessel owned by the Flemish government is designed to accommodate 12 scientists at most. That is why ‘Expeditie Zeeleeuw’ had to be virtual. The eLearning project takes 17 to18 year-olds on a problem solving expedition in the North Sea. Participants have to find creative solutions to ten problem cases. They receive assistance from 20 scientists who are briefed to act as a coach. All educational tools are available on the internet.The problem cases represent ten major domains in which 500 scientists perform varying types of research in the North Sea realm. These domains are: climate, shipping, fisheries & aquaculture, biodiversity, pollution, marine heritage, marine air quality, beach litter, space use and war ammunition.
