(This workshop is temporarily unavailable. Do check back for updates.)

The field study workshops aim to educate students on the diversity of life in the natural environment in Singapore. It encompasses experiential learning through interactive guided walks and hands-on session. Educational materials will be provided for these workshops.

The 3-hour mangrove field study workshop explores the diversity, ecology and dynamics of the mangrove ecosystem such as that found in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and Pasir Ris Park. In the guided walk, participants will learn about the adaptations of plants and animals in the mangroves, such as the various types of breathing roots and how mudskippers can live out of water. Participants get to examine real specimes in a hands-on session, further enhancing experiential learning. Worksheets with thinking questions are given to participants to help them develop creative thinking in science.
