Each participating school will choose a local river to adopt as their own. The JC-WISE team will then provide training courses on methodologies for selected teachers and students from each school, to prepare the students to take on the role of citizen scientist. Students who receive the training will conduct surveys and collect relevant data on important dimensions of local rivers. Their thematic projects could focus on the river's water quality or ecology, or they could compile oral histories on the river's social and cultural significance.
Teachers and students can learn more about local rivers by visiting Rivers@HK Database.
Details of training courses will be announced in due course.
