STEM 生態探索調查

找到鳥! 培基!


A 培基小學位處於半山,被叢林包圍著,校園更擁有一個倚山而建的環保生態園, 因此培基周邊擁有多樣化的物種,很多鳥類常在附近出現,甚至停留覓食。過往幾年,我們記錄了一些鳥類出沒的品種和數量。現在我們將陸續跟大家分享我們的發現,讓同學們也一起探索培基周遭的大自然環境,進一步了解出這區常見鳥類的生態。

 

我們可以就著幾方面了解,

  1. 林鳥 / 水鳥
  2. 留鳥 / 侯鳥
  3. 身體的特徵
  4. 群居 / 獨居
  5. 出沒的時間及季節
  6. 鳥類的叫聲
  7. 攝食的類別

 

如可以,我們可以在一段固定的時間調查牠們出沒的數量, 現在我介紹一下兩種在培基環保生態園常見的鳥類.

 

紅耳鵯

Red-whiskered Bulbul

Pycnonotus jocosus

Crested Bulbul

身長約 20 cm

全身偏褐,頭、嘴和腳黑色,有獨特的直立冠羽,耳羽紅色,面頰及喉白色,有明顯黑色頰紋。上體至尾部褐色,尾羽末端有白點。下體淡褐色,臀部橙紅色。幼鳥無紅色耳羽,臀部紅色較淡。常發出清脆的「bulbit…bulbit…」聲。

 

About 20 cm

Dark brown upperparts. Black head, bill and legs, prominent erect crown feather. Red ear-coverts, white cheeks and throat, with black moustachial stripe. Brown upperparts to tail, which is tipped with white. Underparts pale brown with orange red vent. Juvenile lacks red cheeks and has paler red vent. Calls a cheerful “bulbit…bulbit…”.

身長約 65 cm

引人注目的大型長尾鳥類。頭至胸部黑色,頭頂至後枕白色,嘴、虹膜和腳紅色。上體藍色,下體白色。有很長而帶藍色的尾羽,尾下羽毛黑色,末端有大白斑。常發出高音響亮的「chak–chak」聲。通常小群活動。

 

About 65 cm

Conspicuous large bird with extraordinarily long tail.  Black from head to breast, white from crown to nape. Bill, iris and legs are red. Blue above and white below.  Long blue tail tipped white. Calls loudly, a high-pitched ‘chak’ repeated several times. Usually occurs in small groups.

STEM活動-學在濕地

香港濕地公園教育活動。是次活動旨在提升學生的科學知識及培養興趣,讓學生認識濕地中的鳥類,蝴蝶及各種動植物的生態。同一時間學生進行STEM學習活動,利用已編程的micro:bit拼成土壤濕度檢測器及指南針於濕地公園不同位置量度土壤濕度及辨別方向。學生回校後分析數據。

Science Excursion

Students learnt more knowledge about Science outside the classrooms.

Science Day

Students showed great interest in doing the experiments of Science Day. They worked and cooperated with their classmates happily and enjoyably.

J2 STEM Activity - classification of plants based on the characteristics of stems

Our School Principal – Mr. Ng picked up some photos of plants of our school campus. He forgot the names of plants. He invites all J2 pupils help him to find them out. And hence observe the characteristics of plants to classify them into groups based on their similarities and differences of stems, leaves or other parts of plants.

STEM Science Investigation Activity(Making earmuffs to protect our hearing from noise)

Students investigated which materials have better ability of absorbing sound / soundproofing recorded by tablets and db meters through hands-on and minds-on STEM activities and hence designed the earmuffs to maximize the ability of absorbing sound / soundproofing according to their findings.

香港公園綠色大搜索比賽

學生透過香港公園綠色大搜索比賽加深了對大自然及香港生物多樣性的認識, 提高他們保育大自然的意識。活動中,學生亦提升了他們的組織及與人合作的能力。本校學生代表在2017年度比賽中獲得優異獎。

STEM Science Investigation Activity (Solar Energy Conversion by Solar Panels)

Students investigated which factors affecting the efficiency of conversion of solar energy into electrical energy by solar panels through hands-on and minds-on STEM activities and hence designed the solar panel set-up to maximize the generation of voltages according to their findings.

Inter-School Science Experiment Competition

Through this competition, all the participants actively participated in this activity. They felt interested and eager to win in the competition .

Science Corner

The senior form students who were the winner of the Science Experiment Competition had demonstrated their experiments to the junior form students.
