Year 8 have the opportunity to take part in the Lumi project this term. They will be accessing entrepreneurial workshops every week after school throughout the summer term, developing ideas and solutions to real-world problems such as sustainability and inequality.
Based on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, the interactive programme extends their knowledge of the world, flexes their research and development skills, and fosters critical thinking over and above their academic curriculum.
Lumi is based on three phases of design thinking – ideation, creation and prototyping. Students will be working with moderators to create actionable solutions that will help shape a better future. During the sessions, they will be introduced to current issues, debate nuances, and engage on solution planning. Solutions may range from apps, campaigns to multi-modal platforms.
After three months, our Year 8 participants will emerge with a solution that can be rolled out to friends, family and schools. They will also carry a profound understanding of world around them and more importantly, they will be equipped with skills that can make an impact on society.
