Hosted by expert educators, students will develop their understanding of living and nonliving things and the positive and not-so positive impacts of human interactions on an ecosystem through hands-on activities. CERES educators will guide students through problem solving and action planning to create change within their school community and explore solutions to increase biodiversity at school or home.
Through a variety of hands-on activities students will:
- learn about and identify elements of a healthy ecosystem for a variety of wildlife
- explore scientific methods to measure and analyse habitat
- consider how humans can care for local ecosystems and wildlife
- explore connections between Indigenous Australians and the native Australian landscape
- analyse how different land management practices over time have used to protect or degrade ecosystems
Students should meet at the CERES schools entrance (described below in transport) at 9.30am for roll marking.
Contact Mrs Ball if unable to attend or running late.
Students will be dismissed after the program ends which will be approximately 2pm.
Take the Number 96 tram to East Brunswick from the city (from Bourke St, travelling up Nicholson St) to the intersection of Stewart and Nicholson Streets, which is the last stop. CERES is about a 2 minute walk from the tram stop. Turn right down Stewart St – CERES’ main entrance will be right in front of you, as Stewart St turns the corner and becomes Roberts St. The schools entrance is further along Roberts St – enter via Lee St.
