Co-organized by Beijing Teenager Science & Technology Club and XTBG, the popular scientific activity entitled “Exploration of tropical rainforest by teenagers” was formally opened on January 25 at XTBG.


   After having a general understanding about XTBG, the teenagers from various key senior middle schools are to experience scientific observations and experiments which were elaborately designed by scientists here. A series of science popularization reports, such as “Importance of species conservation and phonological observation”, “Preservation and research of aroid plants at XTBG”, “Countermeasures of plants”, “Long-term ecological monitoring and research of tropical rainforest”, “Photosynthesis of plants in tropical rainforest”, “Dialogue between fig wasps and figs” and so on, are to be delivered to them.


     The science popularization activity is aimed to increase the juveniles’ understanding of tropical rainforest, to provide a platform for communication between scientists and middle school students, and to arouse the keenness on nature.
