Biology: A Local Ecosystem – Year 11

In this ecosystems excursion, Year 11 science students investigate the function of intertidal wetlands.

On a science field trip to Sydney Olympic Park, students:

  • observe the intertidal wetland ecosystem
  • construct food chains
  • measure abiotic factors to compare mangrove and salt marsh environments.
  • link these factors to the distribution and abundance of organisms in the environment.

Students also estimate population trends using field study equipment, quadrants and a transect. To see what students can experience take a look at our online virtual tours.

Earth and Environmental Science: The Local Environment – Year 11–12

On this senior secondary school excursion, students explore a local environment in Sydney.

They build on existing knowledge of their local area and develop skills to expand on their understanding of geological and climatic concepts.

This science field trip includes the following field work:

  • abotic and biotic testing
  • creating food webs
  • adaptations
  • sampling
  • transects 
  • past and present use of the Sydney Olympic Park area.
