Biology Guest Speakers 2018

Mrs S Porter —

From the 'Bug Man' to visiting University Professors

Ruud Kleinpaste took some time out of his busy schedule to enthrall our Y12 Biology and GATE students with his visionary talk about the importance of Biodiversity and the development of Scientific literacy so that we can all engage in conversations about Planet Earth - our home.

Professor Jon Hickford from Lincoln University talked to Y13 Biology students about selective breeding in NZ sheep as part of their work into investigating how we have been genetically manipulating some species for thousands of years. Jon is a world leader in sheep genetics and breeding.
