Mentoring
Approach

We believe social collaboration enhances STEM education by promoting real-world application, diverse perspectives, communication skills, engagement, innovation, and critical thinking. Our coding program includes a mentoring scheme that connects students with experienced mentors who provide real-world context, individualized feedback, and social and collaborative skill development.

Our mentoring scheme uses PERMA and SEL to enhance the following:

Evaluation

We take program evaluation seriously and collaborate with researchers from The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Our evaluation process includes quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews to provide a comprehensive view of program impact. 

 

Surveys use standardized scales to assess changes in students' thoughts, well-being, attitudes, and behaviors. Interviews with students, teachers, and mentors are semi-structured, adding depth to our understanding. Through rigorous evaluation, we continuously enhance our programs for meaningful impact.
