1819 S5 Bio Field Studies

Date: 23/05/2019

53 S5 Biology students experienced a one-day ecology fieldwork in a freshwater stream in Tai Mo Shan, Tsuen Wan.

Two teachers of Ho Koon Nature Education cum Astronomical Centre led our students to the field and taught them to measure the abiotic and biotic factors in the field. Students applied the skills they have learned such as using a quadrat to estimate the abundance of various organisms; using photometer to measure the light intensity. They were asked to record all the measurements in the data sheet. After the fieldwork, students examined the water collected from the field by using light microscope and performed water test in the laboratory of the Centre.
