Event description
Learning about the connections between marine science and environmental health and solutions to environmental problems.

About this Event

This is an advanced program designed for upper primary and middle school students to investigate the impact on our local marine ecosystem. We will "dive" head first into one of Hong Kong’s least-explored places – the ocean! In this camp, we will take a multi-disciplinary approach to learning and incorporate studies in chemistry, oceanography, ecology, and marine biology to learn about Hong Kong's amazing waters and the animals and plants that inhabit them. Students will use scientific tools including water analysis, quadrats and microscope to determine the magnitude of ecological disturbance as well as use a stream table to understand sediment transport, how beaches are formed and how pollution reaches the sea.

The last 30mins of the last day, scholars will have a presentation about what they have learnt in the course and parents are welcome to join. Every scholars will get a certificate from The Harbour School.

This camp is open to students 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!
