This product is only available upon request. Contact us for a quote.

Overview:

The Young Maker Series #3: Changemaker is for more experienced young makers who want to use what they learnt for social and environmental impact. Children will work in groups to go through the process of design thinking to build a project that address social or environmental issues. Children will also bring their prototypes to the field for testing and collect user feedbacks. In this course, children take the initiative, while we will provide a framework, mentorship and technical support to the children to make their ideas into reality and make impact.


「小創客系列#3:創革者」是一個專為有經驗的年輕創客而設。 孩子們將通過團隊合作,通過設計思維的過程來建構一個解決社會或環境問題的創客項目。 孩子們會將他們的原型送到現場進行測試並收集用戶反饋,再不斷反覆完善設計。 在這個過程中,由孩子們作主導,我們會給孩子提供一個框架,指導和技術支援,使他們的想法變成現實並為我們的社會及環境產生正面的影響。
