Presentation of the ForBioSensing project at Primary School No. 2 in Piastów

Pupils from the 7th and 8th grades from Primary School No. 2 in Piastów, took part in our educational lessons about the ForBioSensing project. Meetings with schools are one of the elements of our promotional and educational activities.

The aim of the classes is to broaden knowledge about forestry in Poland, presentation of the ForBioSensing project (presentation of the idea, problem, tools used in it and the purpose of monitoring forest stands in the Polish part of the Białowieża Forest). During each class hour with students, several devices have been shown that are necessary during the work carried out by our field team, including: a dendrometer (device measuring the growth of the tree to thickness and trimming from the trunk with marked fire scars). During the classes, our promotional film "The life of a Tree", in which no man appears in any of the scenes. The film was fully devoted to the natural beauty of the Forest.

As you can see in the attached photos, the children gave full involvement during the classes. We are pleased that once again we could present our activity and share knowledge about the stands of the Białowieża Forest.
