Catherine aims to increase awareness in young people of the world around them and an appreciation and understanding of environmental issues. Hands-on activities include using pooters to catch invertebrates, preparing the specimens for viewing under microscopes and using simple keys for identification.

Team games such as scavenger hunts, colour games and mirror magic promote observational skills in the children. Simple field work techniques such as line transects, quadrat surveys and soil testing are also part of the visit. An engaging slide-show on the mammals of Ireland with a fascinating display of these super furry animals is also an option. All the activities are designed to suit the particular age group of the day.
