Local school program brings computational thinking and coding skills to the youth in less resourceful schools where students are at the risk of being left behind in the STEM race.
We are developing an accelerated Information & Computer Technology (ICT) curriculum unique in teaching Form 2 & 3 students to write practical mobile apps essentially by themselves.
In partnership with MIT, we have improved the popular tool, App Inventor, to make it accessible to these technologically inexperienced youth.
At the same time, we have a distinctive mentoring scheme to promote psychosocial
development and community involvement. We gather resourceful adults in the community to support these youth in creating useful apps not only to solve their own problems but also to benefit the larger community.
To help students develop computational thinking and psycho-social skills through coding education and mentoring.
School-based ICT curriculum
Utilise the Design Thinking approach
Focus on problem solving
Supplement and strengthen schools’ STEM curricula
Integrated mentoring scheme
Gather resourceful mentors
Support the youth in creating apps to serve community
Life impacts life
User friendly and helpful for beginners
Based on MIT App Inventor & jointly developed with the MIT App Inventor team (affiliated with the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory)
School-based Train-The-Trainers Model
The local school program is adopted by all F.2 (Year 1) and F.3 (Year 2) students.
We facilitate ICT teacher(s) to teach the coding curriculum
& software, and counselling teachers to coordinate and implement with mentoring scheme.
Or students age 12 or above
One year (F.2)
Two years (F.2-3)
Teacher facilitation workshop: help teachers to master the core content
Teaching materials sharing: Teachers can access to our ICT curriculum, software, and all teaching materials.
Teacher facilitation workshop: help teachers to master the core content & team building
Continuous support : we will continuously help organise the mentoring program at your school.
