The Canadian magazine Green Teacher offered the Climántica program, led by IES Virxe do Mar, a collaboration as a consortium. The reached agreement is that this educational program would identify innovative experiences so that the journal can validate and publish them as a collaboration between the two organizations.

Within the framework of this collaboration, the published volume in June 2018 includes the article Shellfish and Climate Change Research. In this article it is presented an experience of school research which is gathered in the Young Scientists section of this portal. Throughout the article it is exposed how students follow the methodology and directions of a relevant research group in order to know to how climate change may be affecting the transition from swimming larvae to bivalve molluscs the intertidal of Testal (Noia).
