Once more, Tunas Muda International School entrusted  LIGLA to arrange an excursion study to Bodogol forest. A slight difference from the years before, this year besides (Environmental Systems and Society) and Geography, one more addtional subject will be joining which was Biology. Bodogol forest was chosen because the of its appeal as one of the area of Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park/ Taman Nasional Gunung Gede Pangrango (TNGGP).

Environmental Systems and Society students conducted a comparison of two areas inside Bodogol forest that have gone through succession process. They compare it by collecting abiotic (pH and soil moisture) and biotic factor (plant diversity). They also compared two river sites using  Trent Biotic Index, a comparison was also done to the presence or absence of organic pollutant in the form of E. coli which might be present in the river. Primary productivity data was also taken in order to be compared.

Geography students observed the river.They collected data of the river profile, bed load size, speed of river flow and also other factors such as; pH and dissolved oxygen. Meanwhile Biology students collected microbiological sample from the middle of the river and the river banks.

Four days of activity passed really quick, because there were so many task to do by the students. But the seemingly tight schedule did not dampen their spirits to collect all the data that they need.

For the second time, LIGULA was trusted to arrange a field trip for grade 6 students of Sekolah Pelita Harapan – Sentul City. The focus of the activity was the same as last year’s which are colonialism and energy. The school chose Malabar, Pangalengan as the location for the activity.

For three days and two nights the students stayed in Pangalengan, experienced the cool weather of South of Bandung. At those times, they visited a Plengan hydroelectric power plant which is one of the the eldest power plant that have been operating since 1923 and still running until now. The power plant utilizes water that came from Lake Cileunca, which took about half an hour ride from the power plant. At Lake Cileunca-which was a man-made lake- the students can observe a unique dam structure  local people call it dam pulo or island dam, it was because the dam is located near the center of the lake, just like an island. The dam supplied water to Plengan hydroelectric power plant through underground water pipes.

The students visited Malabar tea plantation that was once managed by Bosscha, he was known for his contribution in the making of Bosscha Observatory in Bandung. Within the plantation the students can also observe Bosscha’s Mausoleum. They also visited Rumah Hitam (The Black House), which was the housing meant for tea plantation workers built in the year 1896 . There were many black houses built back then, but now only one left.

The last place the student visited was Cikondang traditional village. In this village they were able to get the information concerning the traditional views, culture and even old legends from Abah Ilin (one of the village elders). Beside serious learning process, the students also had their share of fun by playing  a series of games provided by LIGULA. Everybody enjoyed their time while in Malabar.

On January, LIGULA was trusted to arrange a field trip for grade 5 of Sekolah Pelita Harapan  - Sentul City. The activity was limited to two days because the students were very young. the theme for the activity was conservation in synchronization with the topic discussed in class.

The places of interest visited by the students were Javan Gibbon Center and Pusat Pendidikan Konservasi Alam Bodogol (PPKAB)/Education Center for Nature Conservation  of Bodogol which located within the Gede Pangrango Mountain National Park . In this opportunity, the students were able to observe Javan Gibbon (Owa Jawa ) in the recovery process, because those Javan Gibbon have been made pets and so their animal instinct have deterioriated. Before released into the wild, the gibbons were coupled with the opposite sex until they can form one small family unit.

Moreover, the student also learned how plant using hydroponic method, a method of planting which can save space. Besides learning, the students also had the chance to play in nature, everyone was having fun and enjoyed their time. In two days of activity, the students were able to understand more about the concept of conservation and what can they do to be a part of the conservation effort.

On 12 November 2012 LIGULA was trusted to organize an activity entitled “Freshwater Quality Monitoring for the students of International Class of SMA 28 Jakarta. The students who joined this activity were the students of grade X. This activity was held in support of their learning process of which following the National Curriculum as well as CIE (Cambridge International Examination) Curriculum.

The majority of the X graders were still new to this type of hands-on activity, but that did not pose any problem because in the activity they were divided into small groups and to each group was assigned one mentor. This mentor acted as a facilitator for the activity, they are capable of guarding the safety of the students, could be a good partner for discussion and still be able to maintain the flow of activity to be fun for students.

The fact that the students faced a hard time in collecting animals for sample, measuring abiotic factor and drawing a conclusion would be a priceless experience and fun in the same time for them. The students will understand a concept better by doing it themselves.
