Biology Field Trip to Ainsdale Sands

Biology Field Trip to Ainsdale Sands

The biology trip that took place on the 27th of September was an in depth scientific excursion which left the students with much to  be discussed back in the lab. The rich qualitative data that was collected by the students was to support the theory that they are currently learning. Akram Belwassa, a student who attended the trip, explained it was an enriching experience where he learnt many things. Some of the activities they did included; taking soil, sand and plant samples to test how habitable the environment becomes depending on the distance from the sand dunes. Their results confirmed that the further they go from the ocean the more habitable the environment is, proven by the amount of vegetation that grows. This trip was organised because they are studying succession in the biodiversity and ecosystems module. Armana Hemmati, also a student who went on the trip, described the trip as useful as it gave her an insight into the real life of a biologist, which she said could potentially be her career path. The trip, in which many potential biologists participated and enjoyed, is typically an enthralling experience and is highly recommended by all those who attended.
