On February 8th, our 4th Batch students visited the Ocean Science Centre Mindelo (OSCM) one of our partners.

Guided by the OSCM Team, they explored state-of-art equipment like sensors, ecosounders, microplastic samplers, and the CTD prolifer, gaining insights into ocean research.
During this visit, was shared the collaboration with GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany and Institute of the Sea (IMar).
One of the main focuses of the centre at the moment is understanding Saharan dust using a green laser and its marine chemical and biological laboratories left a lasting impression.

Thank you, OSCM Team, for a day filled with discovery and knowledge specially because the visit has undoubtedly deepened our students' understanding of marine sciences.
