All San Clemente students were thoroughly engaged viewing demonstrations, asking questions and conversing with the numerous experts in their fields willing to share their experiences of the many STEM applications in the workplace. 

10 Marine Studies Excursion to Stockton Dunes

On Wednesday in Week 7 our Year 10 Marine & Aquaculture students conducted their field study of the Stockton dune system as part of their Coastal Management unit of work. Students noted environmental conditions, GPS coordinates and made observations of the flora and fauna on and around the dunes. They were also provided with information about the human uses and impacts on the dunes, such as the Worimi people who sourced molluscs and fresh water from the dunes. The field trip finished with a sandboarding session and pockets full of sand! Thank you to Miss Ruddy and Mr Allan.
