Project-based Learning / Research Thesis
To develop an independent learning habit among our students and equip them with the skills of life-long learning, Project-based learning and Research Thesis sessions are arranged for Secondary 2 and 3 students.
To echo with STEM education development, the theme of the Secondary 2 Project-based Learning is STEM-related. Students are encouraged to find problems in their daily lives and solve them using science and technology. In the process, they are engaged in discovery processes and try to apply scientific theories and coding skills in finding solutions to these daily life problems.
For Secondary 3 students, as part of their graduation requirement, they need to complete a Research Thesis. The Thesis will be completed on a group basis. Students will investigate in depth on a STEM-related topic under the guidance of our teachers. Through this study, we aim to develop students’ independent learning skills.
In order to enable their peers and parents to have a chance to share the fruits of students’ efforts, a presentation day is arranged for students to present the findings of their studies.
The “MAKER” Curriculum is our school-based curriculum, which aims to extend students learning in STEM and their generic skills through cross-curricular collaboration. MAKER is an acronym of the five skills that we want students to acquire through this curriculum, namely Mathematical Modelling skills, Analytical skills, Knowledge Management skills, Entrepreneurship and Research skills. The teaching of these skills is infused in different subjects and the MAKER courses, where students can learn the skills in authentic contexts.
