Here at Expedition Class, it's the official year of the cave. We're an adventurous appendage of the Bookend Trust's Sixteen Legs project. The Cave Search expedition will be LIVE from 18th August - 12th September 2014 with new lessons and interactive links to the journey. Free for students and teachers worldwide.

Each week during the expedition there will be a quiz based on the material covered in that week. The first quiz opens 7pm Thursday 21 August 2014 and a new quiz opens each Thursday after that. If you get all the answers correct before 7pm the next Wednesday you will automatically go in the draw for a Cave Search t-shirt!
The links below will become active as each week’s quiz opens:

The South West Marine Debris Clean-up is an annual event run by Matt Dell and a wonderful bunch of volunteers. For more than a decade now they have been the guardians of Tasmania's remote south west beaches as rubbish washes up beyond the gaze of civilisation.
The first Cave ART Open entry has arrived. Lara from Corpus Christi in Bellerive, Tasmania has entered her sculpture. Find out more about the competition HERE>>
