Mitsubishi Electric has always been committed to innovative technology and environmental protection. To nurture this creative and tech-savvy generation and promote green living, Mitsubishi Electric (Hong Kong) collaborated with La Violet Education, a social enterprise dedicated to creative teaching, to launch the programme “Green Living Starter” since the year of 2019-2020.
This project provides a series of activities integrating the concept of Design Thinking to raise students’ interests and participations in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) learning and green living.
Following the success of the first phase of the program, we are delighted to continue to launch the second phase in 2020-2021. There have been 10 secondary schools engaged in the programme since launched in 2019.
To help the students to achieve green living in their schools, homes and communities by integrating Design Thinking with Technology.
Students will learn about the concept of Design Thinking and think about the application of electrical equipment and energy-saving technology in their daily lives from different perspectives. It encourages the students to become creative on their green solutions, develop sense of empathy, as well as improve on their teamwork skills within group projects.
