participate in a regional expo-sciences competition. I liked that idea immediately. What I
ignored at that time is how deep this moment will change the way I perceive the world.
Throughout the following summer, I read scientific articles and I paid visits to many
museums and exhibitions in order to find a captivating and inspiring research theme. All
these studies have led me towards the biodiversity of the sea and the richness of this
amazing ecosystem. Enthusiastic about my readings about the ecosystem of the oceans I
realized the various threats sea-life (under-water world) is exposed to and affected by. I also
realized that this aquatic ecosystem offers unexpected resources of potential medications,

found myself in a universe where everybody was sharing the same passion and enthusiasm
than I did, and all came with the hope to make a difference in the world.
Like myself, many pupils/students have been attracted by science when they were younger.
We have been fascinated by the little experiments, but as we move on to higher school
grades, we have been disenchanted by classes in sciences and mathematics. We couldn't see
and feel the magical side of sciences anymore due to the way they were taught to us: there
was no more space and time allowed for wondering. The school (academic) programs and
curricula are too much filled with learning content; teachers and students feel stressed by a
huge amount of learning stuff. We spend many hours to memorize knowledge and formulas
we forgot as soon as we have passed the exams. We are requested to have excellent
credits/grades in order to be able to... [continues]
