Biosecurity Lesson Plan | Bio Surveillance in Schools Activity

Biosecurity Lesson Plan | Bio Surveillance in Schools Activity

Take your students outside … and help us help the natural environment and agriculture! Get your students involved in some citizen science while they learn about some of NSW’s target invasive pests.

​The Peri-urban Environmental Biosecurity Network have teamed up with the NSW DPI Schools Program to develop a quick activity that will help you:

  • deliver a hands-on activity in your school grounds that contributes to the important biosecurity surveillance of NSW
  • help biosecurity staff monitor the state for some of the pests of greatest concern in NSW right now
  • give your students an insight into one of the many science careers in agriculture and natural resource management
  • get your students outside for some authentic learning!

The resource includes a PowerPoint presentation, teacher guide and optional student worksheet.
