Pupils at Blair­gowrie High School were treated to a visit from the‘geobus’ from the Univer­sity of St An­drews last week.

The geobus team ran a va­ri­ety of in­ter­ac­tive sci­ence-based lessons with the pupils.

Higher pupils learned about iden­ti­fy­ing soil types and con­ducted in­fil­tra­tion ex­per­i­ments while pupils in S3 and S4 learned about the cli­mate through fos­sils and the ef­fect of chang­ing cli­mate con­di­tions on the planet.

She added that high­lights for the pupils in­cluded melt­ing ice and ex­plod­ing bal­loons.
