ECOPOTENTIAL4Schools!

On 24 May 2018, in the Castello di Otranto, the University of Salento and the Museum of Ecology of Mediterranean Ecosystems met over 120 students from Italian and European secondary schools for the final event of the ecology competitions held during the 2017/2018 school year.

Under the guidance of Professor Alberto Basset and his research group, the University of Salento has for years been engaged in the design and organization of national and international competitions for secondary school students, including "Ecopotential 4 Schools", the scientific competition that, relying on the spirit of competition, offers an additional motivation to approach the study of natural sciences and, in particular, ecology.
The ECOPOTENTIAL4SCHOOLS 2018 Tournament involved a total of 15 teams from 6 schools and two countries, Italy and Romania.

The GIMNAZIAL─é School of Bucharest is the winner of this first edition.
