MakerBay is very honoured to be one of the educational partners of the Jockey Club ‘Learning by Doing’ Academy (LBD) of Holm Glad No.2 Primary School to bring the joy of making and citizen science to local primary school students. On 10th December, an official opening ceremony of the LBD was held. We showcased students’ work, opening of the maker workshop and experience sharing with the visitors to demonstrate the different ways of learning.
In one of the module of our making classes, P.6 students learned to design and build an aquaponics system from scratch and understand the science behind the technology. Some other modules include the making of MakerBenches, a bench where all the basic tools are kept, through the module, students learned basic woodworking skills and more importantly, how to organise the tools in a safe and accessible manner; our P.4 and P.5 classes learned about basic electric concept and build a mini solar car to understand the importance of renewable energy. For the younger students, one of their project was to design and sew their own unique pencil and bottle cases.
Here's the highlight of our maker classes in the first term of the 2016 - 17 academic year.
