Alternanza scuola/lavoro

Internship at the Avamposto MARE

 

Giacomo Luzzati, Maria Assunta Corciulo and Noemi Marra are three students from high school (liceo scientifico "G. Stampacchia - Tricase and liceo scientifico "Ulisse Dini" - Pisa). They decided to spend their internship "alternanza scuola lavoro" with us, participating actively to our activities (laboratory maintenance, marine biology courses and species identification).
