Year 8 Sience Excursion

The Year 8’s from Sandringham and Beaumaris Campuses have enjoyed the last two days, exploring the ecosystem of Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary. Activities such as snorkelling, quadrat sampling, GPS mapping, capture the creature and laser range finder were enjoyed by all. The Science staff were joined by two environmental scientists from the CSIRO, who lent their expertise and awesome equipment for the students to use. We were also joined by marine biologist, Lisa Goudie (parent), who shared her knowledge of marine biodiversity. Special thanks to the Beaumaris Lifesaving Club for the use of their facilities.
Students will use the knowledge and experience gained from this excursion to complete a report detailing both human impact at Ricketts Point and the ecological interactions of the area.
