Feedback

"I thought it was fantastic, we also based an assessment task on the skills learnt from this excursion experience. We loved that they could take their own readings from your equipment measuring abiotic factors and population estimates using your quadrats and transects. Thanks so much!" Danebank Anglican School

"A great resource!! Thank you. You have done a great job! The boys have found it straight forward navigating around." Knox Grammar

"The year 11 students have really benefited from the on-line experience. I used it to complete a ‘practice’ field study before they were asked to complete their own when we returned to school. Many of the analysis skills, and field work skills they learnt while completing the booklet, it was good to have a platform for them to complete this while in lockdown at home." Moriah College

"I found the webpage easy to navigate and all the information was easy to access. The students were able to work through the booklets with minimal guidance. I really appreciate that your company was willing to make an online version of a field study for these unusual times. I would recommend it to other Biology teachers." Maitland Christian School

The virtual excursion contains on-site videos and photos, audio information and instructions, identification charts, photos of all results and additional articles.

Teachers will also recieve completed answer sheets, depth study extension resources and additional information about the excursion site.
