AXA Coral Live 2020

9 Nov 2020 - 19 Nov 2020

Over two weeks and 24 lessons, AXA Coral Live 2020 connected students to experts at the CARMABI research station on Curacao in the Caribbean and the National Marine Aquarium in the UK, where the Ocean Conservation Trust hosted the first week.

The live event offers teachers a fresh way to build literacy, practice working scientifically, inspire STEM careers and develop environmental stewardship among students.

Running for a fifth year, the programme welcomed thousands of students from around the world to partake in free live lessons over a two-week period.

These lessons are free to watch on catch-up below.
