The BSD Tech + Cultural Experience Study Abroad Program is a 10-day comprehensive inter-disciplinary learning experience for students. Delivered by BSD Code + Design Academy in Hong Kong, the program focuses on learning through travel and exploration, building with technology, gaining multi-cultural experiences, social confidence, communication, resource planning and management.
Tailored specifically for students in middle and high school, the program aims to encourage students to learn and build with technology to nurture 21st Century skills like computational and design thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration and promote a global mindedness. There is also an extensive range of visits to heritage sites, the countryside, the Victoria Peak, Hong Kong University, museums and more! Students will also have the opportunity to undertake company visits crossing border to Shenzhen, the city known as the “Silicon Valley” of China where many of today’s technological leaders set up their headquarters, such as Huawei, Tencent and ZTE.
The students will also learn and develop the following:
• Independence and leadership alongside emotional intelligence
• Adapt to new environments
• Experience art and culture
• Giving presentations
• Giving and receiving feedback
During the technology learning component of the program the students will learn:
• How to code, design and build their own wearable Pedometer using Micro:bit
The students will use the Pedometer to measure how much distance they cover on foot during their
urban exploration of Hong Kong
• How to code and design their own Mobile App
The students will use this app to blog their learning and travel experiences and develop their
customized “Travel App” by the end of the program.
This truly unique program gives students an advantage when embarking on their further studies,
opening their eyes and shifting their mindset to a world of opportunities.
