This course aims to offer opportunities to explore practical hands-on laboratory and field work to support the delivery of National 5 Environmental Science, including project work for assignments.


This course will support the delivery of National 5 Environmental Science by allowing participants to explore innovative practical work, field work and ideas for National 5 assignments. Participants will explore both laboratory and field work relevant to the learning outcomes of the Environmental Science National 5 course. Participants will carry out a Gap Task based on lesson involving hands-on practical activities and share this with fellow delegates.
