Students will follow the route of enquiry as they investigate elements of the carbon cycle and water cycle in an environment.

They will generate their own key questions and aims for their day, tailor methods to suit their learning, using sampling methods and identifying control measures for hazards.

They will collect data in the field for calculation of carbon in the woodland and water stores, flows and transfers in a woodland environment. The data collected will compare sites with differing characteristics and this data can be further analysed as post course learning. The student will leave with an understanding of the techniques which can be used to measure carbon and water, as well as being able to identify the limitations of their fieldwork.

Small Group or Individual Student Days are designed to bring together individual students, home schooled students, schools with small class sizes, or students that were unable to attend a residential or alternative trip. By bringing groups together we aim to keep the overall costs lower, and you do not incur our minimum daily fee.

These courses are for groups of 9 or less students from any one school. If a students is not accompanied by a responsible adult, their parent/carer must have a completed and returned an Unaccompanied Young People form to us, available in our Customer Information
