Comprising Biology, Geography, Integrated Science and Citizenship and Social Development, the programme aims at enhancing teaching and learning experience in the four targeting subjects. The programme focuses on boosting students' data analysis skills through self-directed researches. Outstanding results may be shared with the authorities, in order to incorporate biodiversity considerations into the management in water gathering grounds.
Targeting the needs of interdisciplinary teaching in Integrated Science, Biology, Geography and Citizenship and Social Development, the workshops and guided tours introduce the different aspects of local Water Gathering Grounds. Biodiversity and ecosystem services of Water Gathering Grounds are highlighted, the issue of development and conservation is also discussed. Skills on how to conduct Water Gathering Ground learning activities for the aforementioned subjects are also shared.
A reservoir-themed guidebook is published annually. So far three reservoirs – Shing Mun Reservoir, Tai Tam Group of Reservoir and Plover Cove Reservoir – have been covered. The books introduce their history, waterworks and biodiversity. The reservoirs serve as case studies to discuss ecosystem services and the relationship between water and ecosystem.
