Event description

Description

Worried about too much screen time for your kids? Sign them up for Citizen Science Camp to get them away from their screen and into nature. During a week your kids will learn about local and global environmental issues, be active citizen scientists collecting environmental data, analyzing and contributing to improving the environment. We will use aerial photography to map areas of Hong Kong that suffer pollution, map coral reefs with cutting-edge aquatic drones and lastly, we will use microscopy to study biodiversity around us. The students will develop a greater appreciation for their environment while developing technological skills in groups. About half of the time will be spent in the lab and the other half in the field. This is a perfect camp for the students that want to explore today world's issues and become the heroes of tomorrow.
