On their second day of activities, UniSA Environmental Science students go on a field trip to the Onkaparinga River and Estuary. This field-trip is designed to engage students through experiential learning, as part of an inquiry-based project which runs through the week. Activities include gathering environmental data and using scientific equipment, as well as team-building social activities such as canoeing, hiking and beach cricket. Students work collaboratively to draw on everyone's talents and experiences to best advantage. This day is part of the Environmental Science Orientation Activities which were designed by NBE staff in collaboration with staff in the Centre for Active Learning (University of Gloucestershire). It highlights UniSA's commitment to experiential learning, and many of UniSA's Graduate Qualities.
