Background: As a bilingual and multicultural school, we provide different learning challenges for our students. We aim to unlock every student’s potential in their learning.

Problem: Grade 4 and 5 students attend experiential learning trip every year. However, students expressed that they worried to join the night safari due to it is too dark and creepy!

Solutions: Therefore, some G3 and 5 students suggested that we could design T shirts which could glow in the dark for the night safari activities.

In this snapshot presentation session, we will share with you how do we launch this project and what goals can you achieve in tight schedule and limited resources. This is a really good opportunity for students to apply their existing knowledge and skills to solve the real life problem.
