On October 31st, Students from Nan Hua High School attended a Floating Classroom on board D/Y The Admiral at Marina at Keppel Bay.
In preparation for the Floating classroom, the students joined an Introductory Lesson which was specially crafted and facilitated by the St John’s Island National Marine Laboratory, Outreach and Education team, and held earlier at their school premises.
The Floating Classroom session on Singapore’s marine biodiversity was taught by scientists from the Tropical Marine Science Institute of the National University of Singapore. Based on a practical approach to learning the students were engaged with microscopy work on the water samples collected from the Marina. As a further enhancement to the learning experience, Marina at Keppel Bay conducted a presentation and tour of the Marina’s Coral Reef at Keppel Bay.
The enthusiastic students showed a keen interest in the corals and the environment and took away lots of information which they planned to share at their school’s Open House Day.
A special thanks to our Program Partners: Rolls Royce and Marina at Keppel Bay.
