The contest “2000 leagues under the sea” was born of the encounter between two associations involved in the sharing of knowledge and education for sustainable development: Bloom and Les Atômes Crochus. This year brought the second edition of the contest in which 3000 students all over France and abroad participated in this cross-curricular contest involving French, Art and Science.

4th year students from Newpark Comprehensive School (Blackrock, Co Dublin) worked for several months on the representation of deep sea animals and their description in French. The contest was co-organised by Laetitia Tessier, European Section teacher, Ciaran Byrne, Art teacher and Emmanuel Reynaud, Marine Biologist (UCD). The students’ work involves both drawings and 3D objects. Their productions will be shown in a unique exhibition in the lighthouse (East Pier) in Dun Laoghaire from the 10 to the 16 of July 2012 as part of Dublin City of Science events.
