All our courses consist of four modules (3 sessions and one exam). The certification level takes young Sonevians from junior to expert, adding a new dimension to their schooling.
Adventure of the Corbin
Learn how to navigate on land and on the ocean with this special course developed just for teenagers. The Corbin is a ship that sank on the Goidhoo Atoll’s reef in 1602. Stay on the island of Innafushi to learn about the sea, its currents, tides, and the methods of navigation.
Learn about our feathered friends, birds! Discover more about the common species on and around our island, how to identify these birds, and their behaviour. We will also teach you how to use a pair of binoculars and finally go bird watching on an uninhabited island!
Mosquitoes and Mosquito-borne Diseases delves into the effects of mosquitoes on the world’s population, how it affects our lives, and what we can do to protect ourselves from the diseases they transmit.
Learn about plastic pollution and the movement of waste reduction globally. We will also teach you how you can directly contribute to climate action from your home and comfort zone with the zero-waste lifestyle.
Thank you so much for organising the most fabulous, stimulating and informative course on mosquitos and malaria for the children. All three came back after each session bubbling with enthusiasm and excitement – they actually wanted to research more after the lessons. Bart is an extraordinary teacher who keeps the children thoroughly engaged. Soneva Academy adds an outstanding dimension to your already magical island.
