Olsvikåsen High School is a five years old school, situated on the Norwegian west coast, just outside the city of Bergen. We have about 450 pupils aged 15 to 19, joining both basketball, practical and theoretical study programs, including natural sciences.
A group of about 28 pupils will take part in the geoscience class this year. The school year just started, and we will use the cruise as an opportunity to introduce topics like oceanography, geology, glaciology and climate connected to the Iceland – Denmark Strait – Greenland region.The science group at our school also runs a weather station. To see the local weather, please visit our website www.olvrealistene.net and click on ”værstasjon”. Our climate is temperate and humid, highly influenced by the North Atlantic Current.
