Grade 12 International Baccalaureate Diploma biology and environmental science students, aged 17 and 18, from ACS Hillingdon International School recently enjoyed a three day biology trip to Juniper Hall, Surrey, to learn how to carry out ecological studies. Juniper Hall, run by the Field Studies Council, is a bespoke National Trust leased location for environmental fieldwork in the chalk North Downs. The students applied sampling techniques to different types of woodlands, culminating in a mini project run by the students independently. The project involved students conducting a sampling technique of their choice before processing, analysing, and evaluating their collected data using statistical techniques. Dr Neelu Sharma, ACS Hillingdon Head of Science and trip leader, commented: “The trip was a fantastic opportunity for students to apply their classroom learning to a practical setting. Students developed many skills over the three days, including data analysis, data evaluation and inferential statistics.”
