The project Il Mare in 3D will be managed by the School of Robotics in collaboration with RSTA, a society committe to environmental issues of the ocean.
WHEN: 10th September at 9:30
WHAT: snorkeling tutored by RSTA Marine biologists, and by expert of the School of Robotics for collecting plastics object (nets, nylon, etc) from the sea.

The Il Mare in 3D project. In the environmental field, the Costa Crociere Foundation is supporting the initiative proposed by the Scuola di Robotica of Genoa, with the goal of recycling plastic to make items using a 3D printing process. More specifically, the plastic waste recovered by Ligurian fishermen selected through their trade associations, from the Marine Protected Areas of Liguria, by the Ligurian Observatory on Fishing & Environment (OLPA) and by the Costa Crociere Foundation itself, for example thanks to the Collavoriamo project run by the Cooperativa “Il Laboratorio” in Genoa, will be recycled to make educational kits enhancing the marine environmental awareness of visually impaired children.
