Event description
This camp will provide hands on learning for young children giving them an opportunity to explore all that Marine Science has to offer!

About this Event

This is a wide-ranging skills course where students will experience how it is like to be marine biologist! They will learn about marine animals, and their interactions, be able to observe and touch the animals in our Marine Science Centre as well as embark on exciting field trips around Hong Kong. Students will explore Hong Kong’s surrounding waters, collect plant and animal species, and use the microscopes in our lab to learn more about the specimens they’ve collected. They will also learn to create field journals like a real marine biologist.

This camp is open to ages 6 - 9.

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!
