On september 19, 2016, Nora and Mans organised a workshop about the Wadden Sea area as part of the Classroom of the Future on the Frankfurter Buchmesse.

Highschool students were presented with samples of plant remains from the Wadden Sea area, which they could study in detail making use of microscopes. Half of the material available was recent material, the other half over a 1000 years old. They were to find out which was old and which was not.

That this proved to be not that easy resulted in intense discussion on what this told us about the Wadden Sea area.
