Up Close with Minibeasts – Stage 2
Thursday 5th August
Welcome to the wonderful world of mini beasts. In this environmental science program students learn all about the wide variety of mini beasts, their life cycles and habitats. Students are shown how to safely search for and catch mini beasts before beginning to collect and record what they find. Using GoMicro lens, students learn to identify and categorize minibeasts. iPads are used to photograph and record the different species so they can be added to iNaturalist. Students then head back to the science lab at Bournda Environmental Education Centre where they can further explore their mini beasts using a high powered digital microscope from the Atlas of Life. Now they are really ‘Up Close with Minibeasts!’
Program cost – $3 per student.
