“Minimising environmental impacts”

A field trip for students to explore for themselves elements of mine site rehabilitation by conducting a site survey, and strategies for the minimisation of greenhouse gas and other emissions, is a great learning opportunity. But for those who can’t make it to the QER site in Gladstone, this lesson brings it to your classroom.

In this lesson, students will:

  • Compare rehabilitated sites with undisturbed, native bushland.
  • Explore methods that are used to reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions at the QER new fuels development centre.

This lesson has been designed to align with the science Australian Curriculum year 9.
