Science teachers from all around Australia are invited to apply to take part in a week-long land based expedition with the TeachWild science team.
Field trips for 2013 :

- Rottnest Island: April 18- 20
- North Stradbroke Island: August 26 – 31
- Phillip Island: October 8 – 12
Teachers will work alongside leading scientists from CSIRO learning about and contributing to hands-on field based data collection and research.
Participants will communicate live with their students via an interactive website bringing the real-life scientific research project into the classroom while simultaneously fulfilling Professional Development requirements.
To be eligible for a field trip, teachers are required to register their school for the “Scientist for a Day” program. This will involve participating in class-based activities and beach surveys which will contribute to the national marine debris survey data. Teachers and their classrooms will be taught by scientists on how to run beach surveys and are required to assist rolling out beach surveys across a year level within their school.
