Once a year, a group of Australian secondary students packs sleeping bags and snorkels and heads to Tasmania to become marine biologists for five days. In the waters around Maria Island, they study and help add to the body of knowledge about our marine environment. For some of these teenagers, the experience is what makes them decide to enrol in university; for others it is the awakening of a life-long passion.
