Moving the biology class (ecology) outside of the classroom

Science Communication
Event Date | 2022/11/09 Address | Pingtung

Moving the biology class (ecology) outside of the classroom has the immediate goal of not only attracting students' attention and increasing their learning interest, but also through experiential learning, allowing students to actually experience the living environment in the teaching process. By \learning by doing,\ students deepen their understanding of the content in the textbook and accumulate knowledge of ecology. Leaving the classroom (turning off lights, fans, and air conditioning) also achieves the goal of \carbon reduction and green teaching.\ The mid-term goal responds to the 2022 \International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development IYBSSD-Taiwan Series Promotion Activities,\ which aims to enhance the public's understanding of the close connection between basic science and sustainable development and demonstrate Taiwan's abundant basic science energy to the international community. The long-term goal echoes the highly prioritized items of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2030: conservation of terrestrial ecology and education on clean water and sanitation. The teaching objectives are as follows:

Allow students to understand the common biodiversity in campus and living environment, as well as relevant knowledge of ecological conservation.
Enable students to learn how to make portable smartphone microscopes and simple hydrometers, which can be used anytime in daily life.
Lead students out of the classroom to observe the world of life from 0 to 400 times magnification, and understand the relationship between clean water and sanitation.

Activity Goals aligned with SDGs Projects

Goal 4: Quality education Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation Goal 14: Life below water Goal 15: Life on land

Teach lion junior high school students to make mobile phone microscopes, and to move biological lessons (ecology) teaching outside the classroom. In addition to attracting students' attention and improving their learning interests; Experience the living environment, deepen the awareness of the content of biological experiments with "doing middle schools", and accumulate their knowledge of biology. Remote targets responded to 2022 "Basic Science Promoting Sustainable Development International Year IYBSSD-Taiwan Series Promotion Activities"; enhance students' awareness of close connection between basic science and sustainable development, and show the international community to Taiwan's abundant basic scientific energy energy ; And echo the conservation land ecology and water purification health education in the UN Sustainable Development Objective (SDGS) in 2030. After the event, most students responded enthusiastically and felt a lot of gains. The teacher suggested that colleges and universities and the National Science Council can hold more similar science popularization activities to drive the teaching interaction with the stimulus of teachers and students of the township.
