School of Biology event for "First Chances"
S1 & S2 pupils from Auchmuty High School attended a Biology event as part of the University of St Andrews "First Chances" project, which aims to support and encourage local high school students throughout school and onto higher education.
We ran a session about counting wildlife populations. All the students listened to an introductory talk, and then were split into small groups to do an activity on photo-identification (identifying individual marine mammals from their natural markings in photographs) and mark-recapture (estimating the number of lollipop sticks in a bag by sampling uniquely marked "individuals").
