Pathlight School fielded two teams of 8 Vocational Track students, Team Galileo and Armstrong for the annual Microthon competition. Organised by the IDEAS Hub at UWCSEA on 6 May 2017, the Microthon was a single-day event that was aimed at exposing coding to youths and children.
Team Armstrong, which chose as its theme, Environment Sustainability, created a recycling bin with a counter module to encourage people to recycle more. They were named winner for the Senior Category for their project. Team Galileo also worked on Environmental Sustainability and focused on the Southeast Asian Haze for their project and although they did not win, it was an enlightening experience for all!
Through this event, our students were introduced to coding and the latest technologies form around the world. They also learnt how to utilise technologies to solve problems. Overall, it was a fruitful and educational experience for all of them!
Good job everyone!
