Why Join Our Learning Hub?

01

FIRST-PRINCIPLE PROBLEM SOLVING SKILL

  • We apply first-principle thinking to reverse-engineer complicated problems and unleash creative possibilities by breaking down problems into basic elements. Students then reassemble the problems from the group up.

  • By identifying the causes behind real-life issues, students will develop the ability to see through appearances to their true essence. From analyzing real-life issues to creating prototypes, and sharing with the wider community, students learn time and project management skills at a young age.

02

CUTTING-EDGE science TOPICS

All of our topics are carefully selected and align with pressing global issues. Our teaching materials are tailored to different inquiry steps, and integrate hands-on activities in order to inspire students to expand their knowledge and skills at the same pace as global, technological and innovative developments.

03

ADVANCED LEARNING Report

  • Students’ learning progress will be monitored frequently by the leading teacher and teaching assistant, and assessments will be conducted regularly among teachers, themselves and peers.

  • Our learning report will record students ‘improvement in an across-subject knowledge, specific skulls and five key competencies, supporting the school report.

For 2020 Online Learning Hub we offer 3 learning projects

Topic 1

Bird Feeding Station

Topic 2

Earthquake

Topic 3

Covid-19

BIRD FEEDING STATION

invite wildlife back into our lives

Over the past few years bird numbers have declined. Birds are no longer coming to areas near your school.

Trees are being cut down,  buildings are replacing green areas, and there is not enough food for the birds.

How can we give food back to the birds?

This topic explores the impact that an absence of some species has on the ecosystem. Students will study the significance of biodiversity to natural systems, and understand the concept of “connection”.

 

Students will: 

  • Explore birds and their behavior and habitats, through investigations, recordings and classifications. 

  • Use statistical data to infer birds’ preferred living environments. 

  • Improve observation, information gathering and data integration skills. 

  • Explore the relationship between birds’ body structure and their habitat through Biology. 

  • Combine Engineering and Technology to design and produce bird feeders.

Building to survive earthquakes

The ground shakes, buildings tumble and Earth heaves and cracks, and millions of peoples lose their homes.

Serious earthquakes are terrifying and dangerous.

What can we do to protect people from the natural phenomena?

Students will analyze the impact of earthquakes on our lives. They will look at the relationship between natural disasters and human behavior, and their respective roles in the Earth system as a whole. 

 

Student will:

 

  • Explore geological structures and crustal movement to understand the causes of earthquakes.

  • Learn engineering mechanics, and plane and solid geometry.

  • Understand the principles of a seismic structure and pendulum movement to make a model, applying control variables and model-making methods.

  • Improve their work through visual art.

  • Convey design concepts using literacy and art skills.

COVID-19

Covid-19 has a high infectious rate and spreads fast globally, causing a lot of deaths.

How do we stop Covid-19 with our hands?

Students will explore the various impacts of infectious viruses on society, based on their own experiences and observations. 

 

Students will:

 

  • Cultivate their ability to "turn crisis into opportunity" in difficult times.

  • Explore the reasons behind Coronavirus’ high transmission rate

  • Understand that soap inhibits the spread of the virus.

  • Understand saponification, chemical changes, and production principles and processes of soap.

  • Trial cold treatment to make soap, and test its effect

  • Improve the prototype via ergonomics 

  • Learn advertising and poster making to convey to the public the importance of using soap correctly.

What will students learn from this project?

Educational topics focused on scientific and technological problems for students to think through.

Mathematical knowledge and logical thinking to help solve problems.

Complete projects by creating prototypes, modeling and even simulating!

Arts to communicate ideas and improve students’ experience, and Literacy to present and promote prototypes.
