Environmentally-conscious Grade 9 learners in Cape Town now have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in the Marine Sciences Explorer course offered by the Two Oceans Aquarium’s Marine Science Academy for free.

It is a content-packed course offering learners hands-on education about what it takes to be a marine biologist, and introduces the students to what a career in marine science is all about.

This unique opportunity is made possible thanks to the generous support of Averda and applications are now open for the 2019 course.

The course will introduce Grade 9 pupils to the basic principles of oceanography, ecology and marine biology. It offers a good mix of theory and practical, hands-on activities to expose students to marine research and scientific methods. The purpose of the course is to aid Grade 9s in their choice of Grade 10 subjects and hopefully assist budding marine scientists with their pursuit of this career field.

How to apply:

To apply, locals can contact Two Oceans on [email protected] for application forms or call 021 814 4555 for more information.

The applications deadline is May 15 2019 and the course will start on June 17 and end on June 21.
