Environmental Challenges

The existing marine program on wastewater is expanded in August 2023 with the terrestrial program 'bats'. With these programs we conduct 3-hour programs for pre-exam classes (vsbo 3/ havo 4/ vwo 5) where we offer a combination of theory and practical assessments.

 At the school location we carry out the marine part, where we test the quality of various water samples and teach students more about the coral reef and the influence of our sewer waste and overfishing. The terrestrial part is carried out at the Hato caves and shows the vulnerability of bats and their role in nature. 

For pre-exam students Secondary Education with the subject biology (3 vsbo, 4 havo 4/5 vwo).
