This excursion is all about fieldwork.
Students learn to read a map and understand BOLTS through participation in our orienteering course.
Students understand elevation by comparing a 3D model of the local catchment to a topography map of the same area.
Abiotic and biotic water testing of the lagoon gives students the opportunity to use measuring equipment and gather, record and analyse raw data they have collected.
