Matrics in Antartica with Riaan Manser

Imagine being newly matriculated and going on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Antarctica with world-renowned global explorer, Riaan Manser? For five matrics, this will become a reality in January.

The 'Matrics in Antarctica' competition provided every single matric student in South Africa with the chance to enter to become one of the five lucky matriculants to go on a five-day scientific adventure to Antarctica.

On entry, participants had to answer the question: “What will exploration of the Antarctic continent do to help us preserve a greener, more sustainable existence on our planet?”

The study tour will be led by Manser and a distinguished team of professors from the University of Stellenbosch.

Manser joins Brent Lindeque to talk about the exciting programme, what the participants can look forward to and how to apply next year.
