Thirty one students attended the summer school in Townsville during January 2016.
Students visited Mungalla Station on the traditional lands of the Nywaigi people, where they listened and learnt about land and sea country. Later that day students walked the path of CSIRO ecologist Eric Vanderduys, looking at the rehabilitation of local forests.
Students came face to face with a green tree snake as well as many other plants and animals. James Cook University ecologists and engineers teamed up for the student led scientific inquiries. This required building and engineering sensors to deploy into local ecosystems, including the nests of green ants and termites. On a couple of the nights students took to the fire pit to cook and to yarn.
