The field trip club is quite possible the best part of becoming a member of ADHSA. The club provides opportunities to go on field trips to many different places around the UAE. The club does come with responsibilities, but it is worth it. Each member of the club is required to help plan a field trip with another member. It may feel overwhelming, but we try to pair up new members with experienced ones, so that it is not too daunting. Some of the trips we have taken in the past include:

  • Kayaking and mangrove tour with a lesson from a biologist with Noukhada Adventure Company.
  • Going to Emirates Marine Environmental Group (EMEG) to learn about sea creatures, clean the beach for the turtles, and clean algae off the mangroves' roots. 
  • We have also camped at EMEG.
  • Learning about fire safety at the Fire Station.
  • Learned about making pizza at Russo's New York Pizza
  • The students made crafts at Art Beat.
  • We toured a wild life reserve where the students learned about animals that are suited for life in Abu Dhabi, and those that are not. 
  • They learned how hydroponic farming works at a local hydroponic farm. 

Who knows what next year has in store for us.
