Intern at Eco Field Trips in Singapore
During my Co-op work term, I interned at Eco Field Trips in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. I taught school groups aged 11-18 on Biology, Conservation, and Outdoor Education topics. I learned various techniques and tactics to engage students of different age groups and of other cultures. I was also happy to learn how to communicate more effectively with my coworkers and superiors whom I traveled and lived with during the job. It was vital that my coworkers and I became quick experts on local flora and fauna during the pre-trip surveys to ensure that we were providing the students with a fulfilling experience, reconnecting them to the planet.
