Purpose of this Session

Session 1
This session aims to enhance students’ learning experiences and promote personal growth within the field of Maker Education. We will begin with the Funding Proposal Workshop (Part I), focusing on equipping students with the vital skills and knowledge required to create compelling funding proposals. Following this, the Student-led Interactive Workshop on Computational Thinking will sharpen their problem-solving capabilities, allowing them to adapt to the fast- paced world of technology. Lastly, our engaging Maker Activity will provide students with an immersive, hands-on experience that cultivates creativity and innovation, strengthening their 21st-century skills.

Session 2
This session is tailored to support students’ continued growth and development in the realm of Maker Education. Building on the previous Funding Proposal Workshop (Part I), we will introduce advanced techniques and useful advice to avoid pitfalls in crafting persuasive funding proposals. Additionally, the Student-led Workshop on STEAM Education explores the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, empowering students to thrive in the multidisciplinary world of innovation. To conclude, our Interactive Debriefing Discussion offers a forum for reflecting on the entire course, allowing participants to consolidate their learning, share experiences, and engage in stimulating conversations.
