Students from Mooroopna Secondary College participate in the Big Digs' Bug Blitz

As part of veski’s inspiring students (& teachers) program, Mooroopna Secondary College took part in Bug Blitz’ The Big Dig Program on 11 September 2014. 

Mr John Laing of Bug Blitz facilitated the visit, which engaged more than 40 students from Year 7 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.
