Expedition Aboard DISCOVERY Yacht Paraffin
June 2, 2017
On the 2nd of June, 15 boys from the nonprofit Tasek Jurong Limited came aboard DISCOVERY Yacht Paraffin to learn about marine science and research diving. Researchers from the National University of Singapore lead a lesson about changing coastlines and coral reefs. The lesson included collecting plankton samples and looking at them under the microscope. The participants were also able to try on SCUBA gear as they learned about how diving is important for research efforts. Afterwards, they also learned about how the marina is working to minimise its impact on the environment.
