In mid-September, SeaBee team member Sindre Molværsmyr (NINA) gave a presentation on SeaBee’s seabirds application to a class in Bergen in conjunction with Forskningsdagene.
Forskningsdagene, or “Research days”, is national annual festival held since 1995 where all types of research and knowledge-based institutions across Norway are invited to share what they do with the public. The aim of these days is to spread awareness and generate interest in what research is happening, as well as learning how it impacts our daily lives. In addition to that, it’s also an excellent way to get young people interested in and possibly even pursuing a career in research-related fields!
During the presentation, Sindre showed the students photos and data that was collected and processed by the SeaBee infrastructure, as well as explaining how the use of drones and machine learning can assist with mapping and monitoring birds over time.
After learning about the process, the students were given the chance to go outside and fly a drone in the park! They were overall excited by Sindre’s visit and eager to learn more about the topic.
