Abstract

The aims of the project were:
- To introduce technological concepts into marine environment and conservation education programmes.
- To publicise the work currently being carried out by WWF and City University of Hong Kong in this area.
- To enhance the awareness of Hong Kong teachers and students to marine conservation
- To provide a platform for design and technology students to partake in a practical design exercise with observable objectives.
- To promote the development of technical, problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork skills
