Stage 3 school excursions:

Outcomes and activities

Students explore a managed parkland or a renewable energy centre. Depending on the excursion, they may use primary science skills, observation, scientific equipment, assessment, data collection, mapping and other fieldwork to discover:

  • how natural and built environments have transformed over 200 years
  • how renewable energy is made, transformed and used
  • how we might protect and conserve biodiversity.

Activities are challenging and exploratory, and may include:

  • mapping
  • water quality assessment
  • testing wind turbines and other renewable energy sources
  • visit to a bush tucker garden
  • mangrove ecosystem exploration.
