Members of the public will be directed to the interactive space, via interesting exhibition elements displaying marine and coastal themes. This area will consist of a display of some of the Department’s research instrumentation, educational marine themed games, short video clips describing various aspects of the Department’s, a career booth and an online evaluation section.

The public will also have an opportunity to tour SA Agulhas II on 11 October 2014 and 12 October 2014.
