Ocean Park Hong Kong

Octopus (Secondary 1–3)

Act for Nature

Through various guided activities, students have the opportunity to learn more about natural resources and to act sensibly in conserving the environment. We emphasise hands-on learning experiences, students can learn through investigating and exploring in the Park, which prepares students for the Senior Secondary Curriculum.

    “Ocean Treasures” fits our school’s science curriculum with the topic of adaptation which could bring the learning of adaptation alive of marine organisms. The thing I like most in this programme was the additional information of the marine organisms.
