The Science Students’ Society (S-Cubed) has helped send two Maltese science undergraduates to an International Science Camp in Bizerte, Tunisia, an initiative of Agenzija Zghazagh. The camp is being organised by the Tunisian Ministry for Youth, Sports, Women and Family.

 The two students, Maria Attard and Ryan Sultana, will be participating in workshops and field-visits along with other students from around the world. During these workshops, they will be discussing environmental and health issues.
They are being led as a delegation by Agenzija Zghazagh’s Andrew Micallef.
S-Cubed’s Secretary General, Thomas Bajada said that “not enough international opportunities are available to Maltese science undergraduates.” S-Cubed said that their role in sending the two students up to the Tunisian camp is evidence of their determination to increase international opportunities for science students.

The undergraduates speak out

Maria Attard:  ” I know it will be an unforgettable experience; so far the atmosphere is lovely and the people are like one community. I feel as though I belong here.”

Ryan Sultana“Tunisians, Algerians and Saudis were all very welcoming, continuously joking and dancing to the sound of a Darbouka ( a type of drum). All my previous unfounded ideas of these people were quickly blown away.”
