Introduction

Summer Springboard for Primary Schools consists of camps, outings, drama, games and Cambridge Young Learner English Test preparation programmes. They provide opportunities for primary students to learn English in a fun yet rather condensed setting while helping keen students to complete the common Cambridge tests during summer. The programmes assure students that summer is both happy and productive, fun and practical.

  • To design a miniature city with different materials

Programme B: 3D Bridges

Integrating 3D printing and the teaching of physics, arch and tension, this programme facilitates application of technology to tackle real-life problems. Throughout this programme, lessons are united by a mission to construct bridges for a city, in which students will use 3D printing pens to accomplish different tasks.
