– Freshwater Aquatic Ecosystem | Stage 6 | Science

This excursion addresses outcomes from the NSW Preliminary Biology Syllabus.

Focus – A Local Ecosystem

This unique and highly engaging program allows students to perform a first-hand investigation to measure a range of abiotic and biotic factors in a freshwater ecosystem using various scientific equipment and data collection methods. Students then analyse the data collected and observe the abiotic-biotic relationships that exist and their interdependence. Students are guaranteed to be involved in a number of engaging and hands on experiences during the course of the day. Through these students will further develop their knowledge and understanding, field work and group work skills.
