Spindrift for Schools receives support from the Departmental Services of the Morbihan National Education Department (DSDEN56). All our content is created in line with the school curriculum and the French common core of knowledge, skills and culture. This is where you can find many documents useful for project-based teaching. It’s also a space where we can share our experience, as well as present and promote the work done by students. We invite you to contribute and share your actions with the educational community.

As Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard’s experiences at sea are interdisciplinary levers for education and environmental awareness, the documents are broken down by theme, typology and cycle and meet the requirements of school curricula. In addition to the Jules Verne Trophy adventure notebook and the well-documented teachers' dossiers, which allow students to familiarise themselves with the contents and illustrate the concepts of the programmes in class, student worksheets, videos and tutorials are also available. During the Jules Verne Trophy, Spindrift for Schools offers specific and interactive tools to follow the record attempt in class.
