Outdoor adventure that boost students’ self-confidence and problem-solving skills

Students had the chance to explore their multiple intelligences during a recent camping trip organised by the SEGi College Sarawak’s Odyssey Club. The outdoor excursion allowed students to put into practice the theory of Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences. 

The camping trip aimed to develop students’ visual-spatial, linguistic-verbal, logical-mathematical, body-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic intelligence. By exploring these different types of intelligence, students gained a greater understanding of themselves and others, as well as the natural world around them. 

Despite the rainy conditions, the students improvised, learning important problem-solving skills. They had to move a solid bbq pit to a new location in the compound and deal with mosquitoes, which are typical of outdoor camping trips. Some even slept outside in the open due to the wet conditions, resulting in a few mosquito bites.
