Teacher Development Workshop

on micro:bit and MuseLab products

As part of our commitment to the STEM/IoT education enhancement for teachers and makers, we held a workshop for 30+ teachers who responded to the invitation to our monthly makers’ coffee and breakfast discussion group.

This workshop was held under the topic “Introduction to micro:bit”, targeting teachers who are new to the micro:bit and are yet to dive into the world of virtual and physical coding with a microcontroller.

We gave an introduction to STEM and IoT, sharing some of the stories behind both acronyms and how it developed, followed by the introduction to the micro:bit itself and how it can be used to teach students about the technologies that are surrounding us today already in almost all places.

Last but not least we taught the teachers how to use our WiFi IoT Booster and Muse21 Sensors, sensing data and uploading it to the cloud in real-time.

Cisco IoT Summer Camp

In remembrance of the 2008 earthquake in Sichuan, Cisco and MuseLab held a three-day summer camp at the Beichuan Highschool, teaching 80 students about STEM and Internet of Things.
 
Beichuan is a town that suffered many casualties and was completely destroyed during the earthquake, relocated and build up again from scratch.
 
To offer the students of the Beichuan Highschool an insight into the modern technology that is increasingly present in our daily living, Cisco and Muselab sponsored and ran this charitable event during the start of the nation-wide summer vacation.
 
The students learned the basics of electronics, engineering and coding, using the MuseLab Booster for micro:bit, Muse21 Sensor and actuator set, 3-i-1 Mechanical Set and the Lego compatible MuseBricks® housing.
 
A final group work project challenged the students to apply the newly learned skills and present it in the summer camp closing competition, whereby the winner teams were able to win 4x Bluetooth Speaker (third price), 4x Smart watch (second price) and 4x Smartphone (first price).

Hong Kong Secondary Innovation and Technology Competition 2018

The PTA for Western and Central, Hong Kong sponsored the above. The Grand Finals, for the 42 participating secondary schools, was held at the VTC campus in Wanchai on 21 April 2018. 
 
                           The theme a “Smarthome”  
 
All participant must use Muse Lab IoT “booster” shields with the BBC: micro:bit
 
Over 200 people attended the event, including the Secretary of Education, the Hon Kevin Yeung and senior staff from the Education Department.
 
It was an eventful day – rich in entertainment and fun for all. 
 
Some of the projects displayed were indeed of very high quality. Both girls and boys representing their respective schools were highly creative, innovative and impressed everyone. 
 
From building a toxic gas detection sensor for an elderly home to a water filtering tank and sensors to identify expiry dates of food in the fridge, the event brought out some smart “young scientists” of Hong Kong.
 
The event was very successful. 
 
Parents and friends who attended the Grand Finale gave a thumbs up for Competition and they are looking forward to next year’s event.
