What's Under Your Feet?

1st March 2019 to 31st March 2019

Event Overview

This exciting citizen science campaign is back for another year! The Pod are calling on schools across the UK to tell us what’s living in the soil beneath their playing fields or local green space for an important scientific study for the British Trust for Ornithology. It’s easy to take part and children will love being citizen scientists and working outside of the classroom. What do we need you to do?

Sign up to take part, conduct a dig and soil/invertebrate survey in October, March and June then upload your data to the Pod. They've got all the resources you need including a short instructional video and quick guide to help you get organised.

Why take part? It's an exciting and engaging curriculum-linked activity, that requires minimal preparation. The scientists would like as much data as possible, but don't worry if you can only complete one dig - it's still an important contribution.
