Biology Fieldwork

At Naturedays, we know that fieldwork is an invaluable experience for all biology students. We provide tailored fieldwork opportunities for all levels of secondary school science and biology students, particularly those studying for their National 4, National 5 and Advanced Highers. Our biology fieldwork programmes allow students to construct hypotheses based on their own observations, collect reliable and representative data to test them and to evaluate their methods and results.

Our biology programmes can be delivered on the Aigas estate over a day or as a residential trip, or at a location that suits you. Follow up sessions are available to cover data presentation, statistical analyses and guidelines for writing up biology investigations.

All sessions are tailored to meet Scottish Qualification Authority specifications, but can be adapted to the specifications of other exam boards, such as AQA, OCR, Edexcel and International Baccalaureate.

These are a few examples of the topics that we can cover. For more topics or more information about the programmes that we offer, please get in touch by going to our Contact and Booking page for our details.
