Throughout the trip, the students were given the opportunity to explore the beauty of the KL Forest Eco Park, through the module prepared by their mentor, such as park tour, explorace and ice-breaking session, besides the interactive way of academic learning.
“We put some particular academic input in our explore checkpoint such as English, science, and mathematics, including games, to enhance their outside classroom learning in a creative way,” Siti Nadia explained about the activities.
