STEM activity: WWF HK – Mai Po Field Trip

To nurture students’ learning interest, enhance their creativity, collaboration and problem solving skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), all F.1 students were arranged a field trip to MaiPo Nature Reserve, which is recognized as a “Wetland of International Importance” under the prestigious Ramsar Convention in 1995.

Throughout October, each F.1 class was led by our science teacher to visit the natural reserve. During their visit, the students were able to observe and appreciate the special ecological features there. They also had the opportunity to conduct a field study, namely “habitat encounter”. Students had to manipulate special equipment and perform a data analysis using professional technology. This was definitely a fun and fruitful learning experience for our F.1 boys.
