The team at 4T have always been active in the local schools, and the Central Highlands Science Centre, helping to get kids interested in science at an early age. One program that does an excellent job at this is the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s Reef Guardian Schools Program.

The program draws school students, their teachers,  communities and environmental organisations together, helping all to understand and appreciate our magnificent Great Barrier Reef, and how we can all help to protect it for the future.

GBRMPA holds a series of networking events for schools up and down the Queensland coast each year.

This year, the networking is being extended to Emerald, and we will be participating by presenting a short segment on how we can judge waterway health by looking at the macroinvertebrates – bugs and insects – in the water.

If you would like to learn more about our great national treasure, and how absolutely everybody can make a contribution to preserving it for the kids in the Reef Guardian Schools, come along and join us.
