Where? Where? Wedgie!: Adventure learning meets citizen science

Andrew Hughes

Bookend Trust


The Bookend Trust has been delivering adventure learning programs  through their online platform, Expedition Class, for over ten years. Hear how these programs have developed and adapted to motivate students and teachers to engage in science and environmental education from a different perspective, an adventurous perspective. This year they are leading the education component of a citizen science project to learn about and count Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles. Find out how students can participate from the classroom and in the field. www.expeditionclass.com/ www.naturetrackers.com.au
