FlexPoint digital courses are mobile-friendly and customizable. Course availability will differ by licensing model. Please confirm course selections with your FlexPoint account manager.


AICE Marine Science is designed to help students develop practical and theoretical marine science skills. Through projects, case studies, and practical activities, students are encouraged to gain a greater depth and breadth of knowledge, the confidence to apply their knowledge and skills to new scenarios, and the vocabulary needed to show linkage between various aspects of marine science. By using the key concepts of experimentation, the science of water, Earth processes, organism classification, biodiversity, and marine ecosystems, students will achieve a level of mastery in Marine Science to help them enter higher education. Further course detail can be found in the course syllabus: This course meets the criteria of Group 1: Math and Sciences for students seeking a Cambridge International Diploma.
