Second Chance Project

Imagining Possibilities

“Content knowledge is becoming a commodity. The world no longer cares about what students know, but what they can do with what they know.” (Wagner, Harvard University)

To encourage secondary school students to integrate multi-disciplinary knowledge learnt in schools, AFTEC invited secondary school students to send in proposals to revitalise Shalowan Village into a Living Campus through application of STEAM education in a special project – Second Chance.

Sponsored by Tin Ka Ping Foundation, AFTEC collaborated with the Eden Project (UK) to organise workshops for the school teams who also visited Shalowan and participated in Flight – Sights, Sounds & Shows @ Shalowan.

Each school team comprised of five students and two teacher mentors. After six months of experiential learning & analytical process, the school teams sent in innovative and creative proposals which demonstrated the integration of cross-disciplinary knowledge and forward-thinking mindset. A comprehensive analysis on the current situation and development possibilities of Shalowan Village were also presented.
