The “Green & Me School Outreach” (junior primary) for P3-4 is themed “Micro Farms”. It aims to guide students in building empathy and observing others’ needs through a scenario-based exploration of resource inequality on our planet. Students will learn about the ways in which human activity can affect nature, and reflect on the complex relationships between the two. They will then come up with problem solutions by applying design thinking methods. We hope that each participant will be able to develop empathetic skills to benefit themselves and nature, and make a stride towards becoming a thoughtful world citizen.
Participants will explore the problem from multiple perspectives and build empathy through drama, interactive games, group discussions and research. By the end of this phase, they will come up with solution ideas.
Participants will learn basic production techniques, as well as technological and architectural skills, which they will apply to create sketches and 1:1 “Micro Farm” prototypes using various tools. This is followed by practical prototype testing.
Participants will analyse and refine their prototypes based on testing results. They will also learn to share their creative processes, final results, and reflections in a presentation session, where they will be able to celebrate their accomplishments with peers, teachers, and parents.
