Innovation and Creative Thinking
Embark on a 6-week intellectual voyage, delving deep into two different, yet important and complementary aspects of innovation; creative & critical thinking.
What is creative & critical thinking?
Creative thinking is a way of looking at problems or situations from a fresh perspective to innovatively develop something new and meaningful; whereas critical thinking is the logical, sequential disciplined process of rationalising, analysing, evaluating and interpreting information to make informed judgments and/or decisions.
Given the scenario of a “ruined earth”, students will embark on their “journey to space” in search of a new habitable planet for mankind. In order to explore the suitability of living conditions, students will be involved in hands-on activities, guided by a range of tools and platforms used to identify solutions using innovation, evaluation and judgment. Additional to fostering innovation and creative thinking skills, students will learn about time management, risk assessment, teamwork, the scientific enquiry process, presentation skills and a touch of robotics and coding.
The success of this course will lie in the encouragement of students to present their ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas, and, using the tools of thinking and relevant knowledge gathered each week, refine their ideas for implementation. The skillset gained from this course will encourage students to actively and meaningfully contribute to solving real-world problems faced in our daily lives.
It’s the journey that counts!
