CSI with SJKC Cameron on the 10th November 2016

This CSI Community Stream Investigation programme with SJKC Cameron (Ringlet) was the last CSI programme for 2016 . Since the cost of conducting the CSI programme is low and funds are still available, more of such CSI activities for local schools will be carried out in 2017. For schools and groups outside of Cameron Highlands a small fee is incurred . At least a month’s notice is required and subject to the availability of facilitators and volunteers, these programmes can be arranged.DSCN4960DSCN4966DSCN4999

CSI with Sri Kuala Lumpur International School

Our CSI programmes are usually conducted for local schools but occasionally we conduct such programmes for outstation schools,private or corporate groups. Programmes are held at the Sg Pauh site which is within  the Forestry Department grounds. Each programme will start off with a briefing, followed by physical,chemical and biological analysis of Sg Pauh (the clean river) and Sg Bertam ( the contaminated river). The facilitators are usually Dr Liau or Miss Melody Woon and they are assisted by a few volunteers.
