The programme combines aspects of social entrepreneurship education, design thinking and STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics). It is a structured process facilitated by highly experienced educators and award-winning entrepreneurs. Participants will work in groups to explore, brainstorm, collaborate and present their solutions for a smart green world that inspires them. This experience helps participants become future ready through learning to design and use latest technology such as coding, robotic, augmented reality, Internet of Things, as well as understanding themselves and building quality relationship with others.
We immerse participants with 6C habits through languages, actions, dialogues, reflections daily. We believe by living these habits and seeing others living them, by taking every moment as a learning opportunity, participants acquire the future ready skills and entrepreneurial dare naturally and seamlessly as they grow during the process.
We immerse participants with the basic as well as latest technologies such as structure, mechanism, coding, robotics, Internet of Things and augmented reality. Each day, participants will explore and apply a technology into a mini creative project that is related to the theme, followed by integration of all knowledge and skills into their final project. As they work on the activities, participants will get a better understanding of how to observe, convert information to knowledge and apply technologies into their idea development, to build self-directed learning capacity into their problem-solving skills.
