Senior Science- ideas for long-term projects:

Senior Science students can grow native trees from seed, in conjunction with the Men of the Trees. They germinate them in different media and measure growth rates.
The students can set up aquaria with tropical fish and look after them. Alternatively, they set up the tanks with yabbies. The students enjoy doing this and the other classes benefit as the aquaria are in the classrooms. They do not cost too much to feed and they do not smell, unless one dies and it is not seen straight away. Keeping yabbies does not need heaps of Animal Ethics paperwork.
Other projects involve setting up a garden from scratch, composting and growing vegies from seedlings.
Marine Studies: snorkelling, boating (including knots and channel markers), archaeology, Bathymetric models and the term project of building aquaria and running fish aquaculture.
