Ewa wants to spread the knowledge which she learned at the MOSAiC School. As a first step, she gave an the interview for the Polish national radio on 13 Sept 2019 while still being on the research vessel.

But the main way to do this is to talk to a different audience. The first talks were hold in January at the Polish Academy of Sciences and at the University of Gdańsk for graduate students and scientists. Ewa presented the main MOSAiC goals with a focus on leg 1a and Akademik Fedorov activities. During the MOSAiC school she prepared videos of few participants talking about their fears before expedition and emotions after the cruise. She showed these videos during the meeting with students to open a discussion about the challenges connected with oceanographer work.

Ewa also took part in the activities organized by the Polish local science center EXPERYMENT, aimed at introducing science to the general public, especially schoolchildren. For that purpose, she recorded a short video in which she talks about the goals of the MOSAiC project and her summer school experiences which is posted on the science center fan page and below.

 

In summer 2020, Ewa had the great opportunity to participate in a cruise around Spitsbergen and gave a presentation for crew members and scientists taking part in the AREX Expedition onboard RV Oceania.

The next audience will be middle school students. She plans to visit schools in her home town, where she will introduce young people to the science world. She wants to encourage middle school students to be curious about the world. She will show some pictures from the cruise and talk about her experiences from this expedition. In the end, she will make some simple experiments with kids, connected to water and climate change.
