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

Each week during the expedition there was a quiz based on the material covered in that week. Click below to test your cave skills.
Last week our newspaper partner, the Mercury, published an article on Cave Search, Cave ART and the upcoming exhibition at the Rosny Barn.
Free Tasmanian school visits began on Monday with Mrs Wickham's and Mrs Dow's classes at Bellerive Primary. Between now and the start of the expedition on 18th August about 2000 students will be convinced to be part of Cave Search.
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.
