Mt Aspiring College

 Mr McNabb's year 8 Science class joined our MothNet - phase one project "Shedding Light on the Night". We had a crazy time getting there with motor way break downs and a long drive from Dunedin to Wanaka - But the weather was fantastic and my MSc. students all got to see my old High School.

We set out the light experiment on the school playing fields using the building lights as the light source for the treatment and strategically placed the moth traps so that the control traps were in similar vegetation - but couldn't 'see' the artificial lights from the buildings.

Unfortunately we only managed a two hour visit - Not long enough.

Mt Aspiring College is a coeducational secondary school in Wanaka.  MothNet visited the school on 17th March 2016.
