Join GeoBus for an exciting day of CLPL for secondary environmental science teachers.

Investigate the relationship between the biotic and abiotic components of two different ecosystems and see how you can run practical fieldwork sessions with your students.

Skills will include quantitative techniques for sampling plants and animals to explore biodiversity in the context of one aquatic and one terrestrial ecosystem.  You will also have the opportunity to use a range of equipment to measure biotic and abiotic factors in each ecosystem.

After the course, teachers will be able to arrange to borrow the equipment to use with their students.

Fieldwork skills and techniques will be linked to National 5 and Higher Environmental Science specification requirements, particularly in relation to the Living Environment unit of each course, and the Investigating Ecosystems and Biodiversity section of the Higher course. 


Places on this fully funded course are limited.  For further information or to book a place, please e-mail and include the name of the course you would like to book.
