Bored Games with Bored Kids
Poverty & Education
The issue we are addressing is a global one. It is a renowned global fact. Kids around the world don't like learning because it seems boring, and if they are forced to learn, it takes a big toll on their mental health and wellbeing. Therefore we are trying to teach underprivileged kids English, while making it fun, so we might be able to change how to view education.
We found out that underprivileged children in Hong Kong do not have enough support from their families in their studies, and they may have a lack of confidence because their language skills are behind the curve. We will help build their language skills and build their confidence towards learning by writing short stories with them, and combine all the short stories into a book to share with others.
Brush Better, Planet Saver
My aim is to create a prototype of a toothbrush that can include toothpaste in it. I think toothpaste packaging is not necessary at all, but a lot of plastic waste has been created because of the present design of toothbrushes. I would like to make a change on that.
Ocean Youth Eco International Film Festival
With the Film Festival, we aim to raise awareness about the need to protect the ocean. Through storytelling, we aim to create empathy and films have proven to have a great effect on young people. After watching the films, young people will be more motivated to take action to protect the ocean.
Will you drama with me
We plan to raise awareness towards underprivileged children, ethnic minority children in particular, and connect them with us through drama. Through our sessions, we hope to help them develop vital skills, including speech, communication and presentation skills, and provide them a platform to showcase their talents.
