Big Dig at Kyneton Secondary College

17 November

Kyneton Secondary College took part in Bug Blitz’ The Big Dig Program on 13 and 14 November as part of veski's inspiring students (& teachers) program. 

Mr John Laing of Bug Blitz facilitated the visit which engaged over 40 year 7 students in ‘hands on’ biology and biodiversity. The program involved classroom activities such as making their own Berlese traps and setting them up ready to add samples. 

The students, teachers and facilitators then headed out on a field trip to a nearby swamp where they built quadrants and collected live samples and photographed them under a microscope, as well as the collection of one square meter of leaf litter. Students observed and correctly labelled specimens before returning to school.
