Bamboo Diversity Jungle Gym

Play-based learning using one of the most versatile plants in the world 

This project was about doing something a bit different from the usual citizen science workshops.  


TTT designed a playground and workshop around the premise of: what if you were allowed to climb on and play with the bamboo scaffolding that you see everywhere, how would that make you feel about bamboo, and nature?  


Students aged 5-13 joined a 3-D climbing scavenger hunt, den building using bamboo poles and fresh bamboo cut onsite, and
model-making using bamboo skewers.


With thanks to the new Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) Subvention for Biodiversity Education grant, and Playright Children's Play Association for technical input.

Every year 50,000 tonnes of bamboo scaffolding is thrown into Hong Kong landfills. That's about as heavy as five Eiffel Towers!
