This is fabulous - we love student innovations! Students from HKA in Sai Kung, Hong Kong created their own app and map around Sai Kung. Each Wednesday students work on ‘passion projects’ with peers from different grades and teachers from different disciplines that share a common interest. For a period of 8 weeks, they dive deep into a subject in a real-life scenario such as: designing your own clothes, building your own computers, or creating a live puppet theatre performance. One of these projects was a cultural mapping project with iDiscover, where a group of 16 students mapped their own neighborhood through a step-by-step approach involving games, site surveys, interviews, photography, creative writing, and design. The content was uploaded into the iDiscover App and it is now available as a 1-hour walking itinerary that highlights the best of Sai Kung.
