In a pilot programme held earlier last month, the James Dyson Foundation partnered with teachers from the School of Science and Technology (SST) to engage 40 Secondary Three students with the Engineering Box learning resource. Aside from hands-on experience with Dyson machines, students also had the opportunity to hear from John Churchill, Dyson’s Chief Technology Officer about the world of design engineering, design thinking and technology development.
Emily Chang Ren Minh, a secondary three student from SST said, “The James Dyson Foundation Engineering Box programme was an eye-opening experience for me. I am inspired by how many disciplines of engineering there actually are, and how engineers can work together to solve everyday problems. I hope I will also be able to create innovative solutions that make a difference to the world one day.”
