In Year 4 Social Studies, Pinehurst students participated in a Citizen Science project on biodiversity. As part of this project they entered the mobile app game, QuestaGame’s Pest Invaders competition. This competition was run by the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
The students were required to photograph and identify the biodiversity at school and home, research and identify the species where possible and then submit them.
The three Pinehurst Year 4 teams competed against both Primary and College students.
Class P13, Kiwi Rangers, did exceptionally well winning two team trophies:
- 1st place Champion Spotter Team
- 1st place Champion Identifiers Team
Jessica French (pictured) won an individual trophy for Runner up Champion Spotter.
