On Monday 15, Level 3 Biology students headed to Portobello, leaving the rain behind and arriving at the Marine Studies Centre in the sunshine. This good weather lasted into the afternoon for the beach survey. The pupils learnt about crab structure and behaviour on the first day and then designed their own experiments which they carried out during the next two days.
They stayed on Quarantine Island but due to the rather windy weather which arrived on in the early hours of Tuesday, there was not much exploring done!
Thank you to the Gap students from Rosmini House, Jonah and Kirsty, for accompanying the trip, and Kirsty for the excellent chocolate pudding on Tuesday night.
