    About me

    I would like to convert rubbish into useful materials. The incubation of worthy and edible mushrooms is a good example of using rubbish as a growing medium. Mushrooms contain an abundant amount of nutrients. They have numerous dietary fibre with low energy values. They have no cholesterol. In addition, they have nine kinds of amino acids which are essential to our health. The integration of modern biological and scientific knowledge will be applied in this project. A lot of mushrooms can be produced on a large scale in the foreseeable future and they will contribute to human health and environmental protection. As a teacher, I wish to encourage my students to have more creative thoughts and inventions through STEM.

    About the project

    The project is designated to cultivate students' interests in the learning of Biology and strengthen their IT knowledge. Students can make an incubator and study the growth rate of mushrooms.

    About me

    “Students are not things to be moulded, but people to be unfolded.” Keeping this in mind, I would like to take this precious opportunity to introduce another lifestyle to my students, a less wasteful but more sustainable one, that they could live green if they want to. Being a lover of outdoor activities, I hope to contribute in environmental protection and I believe that education is the most direct and influential way to change mindset and values of society. Therefore, this upcycling programme is organised to widen students’ horizons that they learn in a fun and interactive way, thereby being unfolded to a green lifestyle in this materialistic world.

     

    About the project

    This project focuses on green lifestyle and upcycling that students will gain basic upcycling skills through workshops. They will then have to make a final upcycled product by themselves-- from designing to searching materials to making-- and present it to other students in school in order to arouse awareness of sustainable lifestyle.

    About me

    How would you tell that you feel good? I feel good when I can focus on the things that I am doing without worrying about the past or the future. I enjoy working in the “zone” where time slows down and my mind works best. To do this, I play basketball to train my concentration and I do meditation to clear my mind. Nowadays, people are to prone to divided attention with the social media and the smart phones. We are not aware that our minds are wandering. It is important to develop the self-awareness that we need in order to know what we are thinking about and what we want to do. One of the happiest persons in Google is a guy called Ming. People who go to Google are not finding the founder or the CEO but this gentleman who is the happiest person in Google. He opened a course for people in Google known as “search inside yourself”. This course helped the staff in Google to be effective and happy. The success of this course suggested the stack fact that happiness could be find within ourselves and we need to stay focus on what truly matters.​

     

    About the project

    In this project, we are going to organise more than 40 morning meditation workshops with MUSE, a headband detecting brainwave for meditation. Along with that, 6-8 meditation workshops by certified meditation trainers will be offered. 1 ECA regarding the use of MUSE and meditation is held as well. By these activities, we wish to alleviate the academic stress of students. Also, promotion of mindfulness and mental health in school can be conducted with new technology. We wish to empower students with special needs with mindfulness skills to calm down and focus.

    (Information and Communication Technology)

     

    About me

    I am a person who constantly learns, challenges himself, and is full of curiosity, and often self-evaluates. I like to discover new things and try different methods to learn. My hobbies include researching innovative science and technology, promoting popular science, studying philosophy and religion, playing music for spiritual development, hiking and traveling. After I graduated, I tried to start a business but I finally failed. I was not discouraged, instead, I wanted to share my experience with students. I think we must start from education in solving the problems that Hong Kong society is facing. It is of prime importance to develop student creativity and 21st-century skills. As a teacher, there are many restrictions such as courses and administration. However, I believe that focusing on the development of students as a whole and trying out different pedagogues can help them become creative and responsible citizens. I believe that it is my goal to influence life by life, to educate students by love, to understand themselves and to develop their potentials. I believe allowing students to develop their talents can enhance their potential and achieve their dreams. This program gives me a chance to realize my dream.​

     

    About the project

    The project introduces 3D and VR technologies to students. Students will learn how to make and scan 3D models as well as build their own VR world using a wide range of hardware and software including TINKERCAD, 3D scanner, VR headsets, and Co-space VR.

    Fu Ka Yan, Janet

    Delia Memorial School (Glee Path)

    (Life & Society and Liberal Studies)

     

    About me

    Let's start by telling my reason of being a teacher. I want to become a teacher because I hope I can use my own knowledge and value to educate the teenagers in Hong Kong to become a well-rounded student. In Hong Kong Society, majorities are always claiming that knowledge can change a person destiny, but to me, a person destiny is always decided by his/ her own character strengths. However, under the current education system with padded academic schedule, teachers are often neglecting the importance of Character Education. I believe every student will have his/ her own character strength, which can be explored in this program. ​

     

    About the project

    This project aims to nurture students’ character and help them develop their character strengths through educating a group of character ambassadors. Students can explore their own character strength through different workshops and visits. Moreover, Character Day will be organised by the ambassador on a monthly basis in order to raise awareness of character education in the school.

    About me

    Perhaps we have always believed that English is a world language since childhood, but in my mind, music is the world language that connects people. Each of us can express our feelings through music, telling stories, regardless of the boundaries of racial or cultural backgrounds. Music is also like "weapons" which can give us strength to face the challenges in life. As a teacher, how can I not recommend such a powerful "equipment" to my students? I hope to open up students' ears so that they can learn to appreciate different types of music and at the same time express their feelings through music and arts to achieve mental health. Finally I hope my students can be brave to pursue their dream with this "strongest weapon".​

     

    About the project

    The project aims to enable students to create their own unique electronic musical instrument with various STEAM invention kits, including Makey Makey, micro:bit and Leap Motion. Throughout the whole project, students will use their self-made musical instruments in several public performances.

    Kwok, Jonathan

    Buddhist Hung Sean Chau Memorial College

     

    About me

    For most part of my life, I have always wanted to study abroad - primarily because I love experiencing different cultures. The chance duly came in 2014, when I embarked on my undergraduate studies in Australia. The experience much exceeded what I could have possibly hoped for. Having enjoyed the benefit of studying in a multicultural environment, I wish to introduce my students to cultures that are hitherto unfamiliar to them. Hong Kong is a multicultural society in which, ironically, preconceptions of and even prejudice against foreign cultures abound. It is my hope that students, especially those from underprivileged families, can deepen their understanding of different cultures through participating in this programme.

     

    About the project

    This project will jointly be conducted with Intercultural Education (ICE), a partner of Edcubator project, to hold several activities including drama, role play, lecture and exhibition at BHSCMC to arouse students' interests in foreign culture. Through this project, I wish to boost students' confidence in using English to communicate with others. Also, we would like to expose students to different cultures and hence promote intercultural learning.

    Kwok Tsz Lok

    St. Bonaventure Catholic Primary School

    (English and General Studies)

     

    About me

    I am a person with an inquiring mind. I am curious about how everything in the world works. That's why I enjoy reading books, both narrative and informative. I also love trying new things and challenging myself. I love both playing ball games and board games.

    My students have little motive on learning English, so I have to think of different ways to help them. One of the innovative teaching methods I have tried is "flipped classroom". By becoming a Youtuber and uploading teaching videos, students' interests are aroused. Low ability students can also catch up with the progress of the class by watching the video repeatedly. Another method I have tried is to shape my teaching content into a task. For example, when I am teaching about food, I ask the students to design an advertisement and some coupons to promote the school tuck shop. Now, I would like to try the third method, which is to change the teaching content into mini teaching games. I hope students will be more interested in English under game-based learning.

     

    About the project

    The project aims to enhance students' motivation and provide them with authentic learning experience by introducing interesting and simple classroom games. Not only can students be more interested in learning, but they can also learn English through game.

    About me

    As the ever–changing world goes on, we cannot teach today the same way you did yesterday to prepare students for tomorrow. Brimming with information and evolving technology, creativity and problem-solving are skills that every child should learn to use as early as possible, in order to adapt and thrive in tomorrow’s society. We believe that children’s imaginations are an untapped resource for ideas that could make the world a better place. With proper guidance and support, everyone can make use of a microcontroller with sensors and 3D printing technology to be a future inventor. Children’s amazing invention ideas shouldn’t just be stuck to a fridge door and forgotten. Let’s work with them and empower them to pursue their dream!​

     

    About the project

    WE School Incubator is a program that makes dream projects initiated by students come true, through raising awareness, training, mentoring and funding. Students will be participating in various workshops to learn Arduino Programming, 3D printing and IOT application.

    Baptist Rainbow Primary School

    (Mathematics and English)

     

    About me

    I am Miss Kelly Lam and I am teaching Math and English in Baptist Rainbow Primary School. A good teacher can ignite students' imagination and instill their love of learning. I hope to broaden my students' horizon and exposure by teaching them knowledge beyond textbooks. As children are our future leaders, it is also paramount to develop their love and care towards society they are living in. Therefore, I am passionate in teaching them about animal rights and welfare so that they will learn how to treat people with a kind and empathetic heart in a youthful age. As a teacher, I wish to be students’ companion in giving them courage to cope with adversity and freedom to cultivate their creativity and power to pursue their dream.

     

    About the project

    Our project aims at using recycled garments and food waste to make toys, healthy snacks for stray dogs in animal shelter. After this project, we hope not only will the students understand more about Hong Kong food waste and recycling, but also they will influence their friends, family and the society about caring animals.

    About me

    This is a dream of a group of students. Noticing that teachers and staff need to always transport items from places to places, students want to help them to reduce burden by inventing a device that can transport items. Our first stage is to modify drones and RC helicopters in hopes of allowing them to carrying items. Then we will try to include coding and GPS module so as to achieve automatic control. Throughout this project, we hope to help students to pursue their dreams.​

     

    About the project

    The project aims to helping teachers and non-teaching staff to transport items in school as well as increasing students’ learning motivation on technology. Students will have the opportunity to modify drones and RC helicopters and even include coding and GPS module in them.

    Ma Yiu Fai

    Ju Ching Chu Secondary School (Kwai Chung)

     

    About me

    I have chances to have exposure to "Maker Culture". I am really motivated! Maker culture emphasises learning-through-doing. Let students to be a maker can stimulate their thinking and enable them to connect the dots across STEM subjects. Through the “Make” process : analysing, experiencing, producing, testing, refining by their own hands, students are ready to make their treasurable work to solve problems. There is no doubt that those experience will enhance students’ learning and analysing ability.​

     

    About the project

    We will divide students into groups to design and produce some automatic experiment gadgets so that some parts of the experiments can be conducted automatically. By this project, we wish to increase students' abilities on applying STEM knowledge to create tools to automatise science experiment, create opportunities for students from STEM subjects to collaborate with others, and eventually let students have a chance to be a maker.

    About me

    I am the member of Baptist Rainbow's underground department (Five Gold Tool Shop), graduated from Visual Arts at the Education University of Hong Kong with honours. When studying at undergrad, I have already been studying upcycling. I used what I have learnt and applied them into teaching. I hope to enhance students' hands on experience. I aim to use recycled materials to prolong the object’s life. I wish that the next generation could treasure resources in order to save the Earth. 

     

    About the project

    We hope that students will be able to make an eco-friendly manned vessel from which students can apply interdisciplinary knowledge and understand the scientific characteristics of ship floating water from scientific experiments. At end of the project, a joint-school competition will be held.

    About me

    I believe in the words of the artist Van Gogh: "Everyone has a fire in his heart. While the passing people only see the smoke, there is always a person who can see the fire, come to me and stay with me."

    Thanks the Lord for meeting my greatly respect teacher as I grew up. My passion for painting in the bottom of my heart is seen, granting me the courage to dream of painting and to paint my dream day by day. Being a teacher, I hope to "ignite" my students -- get on fire, dream bravely and paint their colorful life.

     

    About the project

    The project aims to enable the students to understand the concept of upcycling by allowing them to make a gift dispenser with cardboard. After making the dispenser, it will be displayed at the school gate. We hope students can understand more about upcycling and increase their environmental awareness.

    About me

    I believed that every student is creative. With proper guidance, opportunity and motivation, they are able to make things you have never imagined!

    Being a teacher, I love to interact with student with their fascinating idea. They are able to inspire me with their ideas and at the same time I could guide them with my experience.
    At last, teaching is also learning and the most important thing is to believe in student’s multiple talents.

     

    About the project

    Our project allows student to make a mushroom shed that can control the growth rate of mushroom by creating a simple Arduino base IOT device. We hope students can integrate knowledge in different disciplines to create solution and appreciate the power of science, math and technology they have learnt.

    About me

    A teacher teaches but a good teacher inspires. I hope to inspire my students to learn outside the classroom and to gain life experience from the process of trial and error. This path of learning will encounter different challenges and failures but I wish I could be their best companion and mentor along the way to pursue their dreams. As a teacher, I will be their role model, demonstrating to my students how to learn, how to face adversity and how to be kind, bringing good influence to people around them.​

     

    About the project

    The ice-cream Artist project allows students to design different types of ice-cream and sell the ice-cream at the school tuck shop. There will be a DreamStarter Fair in which students will set up and run a booth to showcase their process and outcome.

    Yang Sze Ngai, Raymond

    St.Bonaventure Catholic Primary School

    About me

    Growing up in a traditional family and having studied in traditional schools, I have gained and suffered much from them. My parents and some teachers care about me so much, however, in their own ways. I sometimes feel loved, but often feel suffocated. Had I not met the teachers and youth workers who really saw my potential, guided me, encouraged me to take risk while protecting me when I fell, I would not have learnt and achieved so much.

    Growing up is a process of self-discovery. Like the lyrics in “The Scientist” by Coldplay – “Nobody said it was easy.” I always feel grateful to have met the ones who helped lay the foundation for me to start the journey. I also know a lot of people who are not as lucky as me. They don’t understand themselves, as the ones who brought them up were only pushing, spoon-feeding, forcing, blaming, threatening, cursing or even beating up them when they were young. These kids, however, gradually lost the ability to self-empathise themselves, as they have never been empathised by their authoritative adults.

    Therefore, I want to start this project and introduce Non-violent Communication (NVC) into my school.

     

    About the project

    By introducing Non-violent Communication (NVC) into my school, teachers and students are expected to learn to self-empathise, and then empathise each other. Workshops and Visits would be organised with experiences from Denmark, USA, Taiwan and Macau. It is hoped, by practising NVC, we can focus more on our emotions and needs, thus connecting more with ourselves and others. In the long term, there will be less conflicts as students gradually learn the way to get along with each other.
