Secondary 2

(Theme: Application)

Our Secondary 2 students apply their understanding of electronics through hands-on activities.

Project Work – “Health Electronics”

During Project Work lessons, our Secondary 2 students design prototypes that seek to address a health challenge. Health Electronics is the theme as we recognise the importance of the health sector amidst Singapore’s ageing population. Examples of prototypes designed by our students include electronic walking sticks and smart homes.     

Through Project Work, we aim to develop the following competencies in our Hong Kah Lites: 
  • A background in electronics and programming;
  • Group work skills;
  • Design thinking skills;
  • Metacognition skills; and
  • Presentation skills.

Project Work Carnival

The Project Work Carnival is an example of an activity organised during E-gnite! Week 2015.

It involved more than 120 Secondary 2 students across all streams presenting their projects to the entire lower secondary cohort. The projects were completed in the first semester and each comprised an electronic prototype built using the Arduino Uno microcontroller. A presentation board documented each group’s progress through the Design Thinking processes (Empathy, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test).

Participants had the opportunity to collect stamps for their carnival worksheets by answering questions posed by at least 8 of the exhibition groups. All exhibition groups competed for the “Most Popular Award” by taking photographs of visitors posing with their prototypes and posting them onto the school’s Learning Management System.

This year, we are thrilled to have ITE College West and Ngee Ann Polytechnic each set up a booth which created tremendous excitement for the event. The upper secondary Normal Technical Design & Technology students also had a game booth where participants built their own radios. It was indeed a bustling carnival!
