2022 / 2023 Senior Secondary Biology Field Trip

Other Conventional Habitat-Focused Topics

9. Study of rocky shore ecosystem

The rocky shore has a unique zonation pattern, as well as many different microhabitats. During the field trip, the students use a belt transect to record the distribution of animals, measure abiotic factors, and learn about how organisms adapt to the harsh environment of rocky shores.

Online Learning Platform for Biology Field Study


HKNEAC opens an online learning platform account for teachers and students participating in the course. Before participating in the course, students may log in to the platform to learn more about relevant knowledge, concepts, and skills, and complete the quizzes. The platform will automatically record the learning progress and scores of each student so that teachers can keep track of the learning situation of each student.


Depending on the needs of teachers and students, teachers participating in the courses may choose from the following learning methods:

  • Watch the video clips and collect data (students learn by themselves without the restriction of time and space)
  • ZOOM live-streaming (collecting data during the field trip, performing statistical analysis, or conducting report review as scheduled)
  • Face to Face Courses (half-day field trip within HKNEAC or 1~3-day field trip off campus)
