“Connecting Students with Nature Through STEAM” Programme

In 2019/20 academic year, Ocean Park will continue the "Connecting Students with Nature through STEAM" Programme. A total of 10,000 students from kindergartens, primary and secondary schools will embark on a STEAM learning journey and will be connected with the nature through a free visit at Ocean Park with their teachers. The Programme will also offer exciting extension activities, including practical sessions where students will have a chance to implement their creative ideas, as well as comprehensive teacher support with instructional resources and workshops.
 
With a vision to be the world’s best theme park resort with focus on education, conservation and entertainment, Ocean Park is committed to providing edutainment experience through the thrill of discovery, while connecting people with nature. Ocean Park also offers teachers a unique opportunity to captivate their students' imagination in an exhilarating and engaging fashion, using the park's rides, animal exhibits, and conservation resources to illustrate and explore the principles of STEAM (STEAM stands for ‘Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics’). We offer programme where students can explore the physics, mathematics and technology involved in our rides, learn about biology and engineering through animal care, and even practise principles of ecology and art through conservation.
