Event description
Live the adventure of James Cook and explore the seas and which Islands surround Hong Kong in this day long Marine Science Camp

About this Event

Students embark on an exciting adventure acting as real explorers. Learn to sail and navigate Hong Kong waters by learning about the history of exploration and familiarizing yourself with the many islands in Hong Kong. Through sailing and data collection, students will live Captain James Cook's adventures. They will learn the principles of oceanography, study the physical properties of the ocean, and learn how to measure tides, waves and wind speed. They will learn to navigate Hong Kong waters, collect and count animals and learn to distinguish different species. Join us on this voyage as we set sail in the wake of sea explorers of old!

Open for ages 8 - 13

About the F.I.S.H Course Leaders: Sarah Taylor runs the Marine Science Center at THS taking care of the animals, working with Hong Kong NGOs to further marine conservation and teaching marine sciences, ecology, and activism. She is from a beach town in North Carolina where she ran a marine science summer camp and worked with local schools. Her favorite sea animal is the cuttlefish because of their high intelligence and personality she's seen while diving.

Maxine Cutracci is the THS Marine Science Specialist. She takes care of animal husbandry and teaches marine biology classes. Before living in Hong Kong she worked as a Marine Biologist in the Maldives doing research on sea turtles and developing projects with a local school on the island. Her favorite marine animals are corals because they are so colorful and... they don't look like animals at all!
