Moss Safari: inspiring interest in nature under the microscope

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The ‘Moss Safari’ activity was developed to assist with knowing which organisms to look for when observing a drop of water squeezed from moss for the first time. In this case study, the activity was introduced online to 34 trainee science teachers. This was followed by a post-session questionnaire evaluating their experience of the Moss Safari. The impact of the activity was positive, with 97% claiming it enhanced their experience. The barriers and opportunities revealed by the feedback will be used to improve the Moss Safari.
