Online quiz promotes learning about Pacific environment
The Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (S.P.R.E.P) has launched a series of online quizzes to help children and adults learn more about the Pacific environment in a fun and interactive way.
As people are going through difficult times due to the COVID-19 crisis, S.P.R.E.P had created a fun and interactive online quiz challenge that could also help people learn more about the Pacific environment and offer a distraction from these difficult times.
The online quiz will help people understand biodiversity as we are surrounded by it, and our livelihoods and food source as Pacific islanders depend so much on its health and wellbeing.
It will also help people know about the relationship they have with their environment and to understand the need to protect it.
The quiz series is intended to be challenging in order to allow for a fun experience, yet at the same time learning as they play as the answers are provided after each question.
The purpose of launching the quiz series was to engage with the diverse social media audience through a fun online learning tool they could play at home.
The first quiz in the series was titled “Pacific Biodiversity” and different quizzes will be released every two weeks about different topics and will consist of 10 questions each.
S.P.R.E.P launched the second quiz on Monday June 8th to commemorate World Ocean Day, titled “Pacific Ocean Quiz.”
The online quiz series can be accessed through Facebook, Twitter, and on the S.P.R.E.P website.
In an email response to Samoa Observer Queries, the Director General of S.P.R.E.P, Leota Kosi Latu, said the purpose of launching the quiz series is to engage with their diverse social media audience through a fun online learning tool they can play at home.
“We recognise it is a unique time in the world where so many are in self-isolation, quarantine, working remotely, as well as continuing their education and learning from home,” he said.
“So as the coronavirus pandemic has had such a dramatic impact on the normal everyday lives of people around the world, we wanted to create something fun to help people learn more about our Pacific environment. And perhaps also provide a welcome distraction during these uncertain and challenging times.”
